I had read the specs, it gives the following example:


   This is typically rendered as:



   Your user agent renders this as follows:



So it seems that your example is indeed a bug in Lynx because the starting
columns should be the same for both paragraphs. 

Anyway, another tag problem:

Shouldn't the alignment of <H1> is left by default instead of centre? 
HTML 4.0 only says 'Visual browsers usually render more important headings
in larger fonts than less important ones', but nothing about its default
alignment (unless using 'align=' attribute or style sheet).  So I assume
<H1> should use the previously defined alignment in Lynx, or document
default (left) if none exist.
