Hello, Lyncei,

YA example of bad? HTML breaking Lynx (attached (excerpted)). 
Intuitively, I feel <dd> has little business appearing between
<a> and </a>.  But that's the way the page is.

Is there some spec I can show the page authors?  I think they
really wanted <ul><li>...</ul>, not <dl><dd>...</dl>,
especially since they nested <dl><dl>...</dl></dl> containers.

Weblint didn't complain about it.
