Nope. The URL standard offers
so your example would go as

Here's a piece from my /etc/lynx.cfg just does just that.

# STARTFILE is the default URL if none is specified on the command line
# note: these files can be remote (http://info.cern.ch/default.html)
# or local (file://localhost/DIRECTORY/FILENAME
#  replace DIRECTORY with the current directory path and
#  FILENAME with the name of the file.
#  file://localhost/dua#/DIRECTORY/FILENAME on VMS systems.)
