Mix sugar, cornstarch and flour in top of double boiler. Add boiling water, stirring. Cook until slightly thick. In small bowl, beat egg yolks slightly. Pour about a cup hot sugar and cornstarch mixture into egg yolks and mix. Add this slowly to remaining sugar and cornstarch mixture and cook. Stir constantly until thick, about 8 minutes. Add lemon juice, grated rind, butter and salt and mix well. Beat egg whites stiff with sugar. Add a cup of this meringue to lemon mixture. Mix well and pour into pie shell. Top with meringue and bake at 400 degrees F until lightly browned.
