The commented-out values correspond (or should...) to the default values
compiled into lynx.

The data in the COLOR_STYLE file is organized differently from lynx.cfg

The "oldlynx" script (which may be part of the package) suppresses the
color-style file, which makes it look very close to the old version.

For reference (the script):

# invoke lynx built with color-style, overriding the color options to use the
# non-color-style scheme -TD

trap "rm -f $my_cfg" 0 1 2 5 15

rm -f "$my_cfg"
echo "DEFAULT_COLORS:off" >>$my_cfg
if test -n "$LYNX_CFG" ; then
        echo "include:$LYNX_CFG" >>$my_cfg
echo "COLOR_STYLE:" >>$my_cfg
echo "NESTED_TABLES:off" >>$my_cfg

export LYNX_CFG
unset LYNX_LSS

${LYNX_PROG-lynx} "$@"
