Hey cool, pre_format_html_hook was what I was looking for.
Also --StayOnHost --StayOnUrl will be possible to do with
it and much, much more to play with :)

Is there a way to have a standard pre_format_html_hook
for all pages?

The idea is that some pages have keywords for their pagenavigation:
"next", "back" and I would like to have keybindings like
"n", "b" to access this links without mouse.

This hook should be configurable for different domains.
I guess I should/can use the luna-console to to this.

But within the luna-console (started with ",")
return "goto-url", "http://www.debian.org"
or even
return nil

Gives the error:
Elinks: Lua: bad argument for eval

What's wrong?
