div tag is mostly for css aware user agents, no? says:
User agents should render inserted and deleted text in ways that make
   the change obvious.

So <del></del> is to keep track of document changes, with attributes providing 
detail if present, but I don't see how you can get a strike through or any 
obvious rendering effect with lynx.
All perfectly true, and therefore Lynx puts "[DEL:" in for "<del>" and
":DEL]" for "</del>" but in this case Lynx put both of its right above the
H3 that named the event instead of bracketing, as I entered it, the message.
I expected "[DEL:" and ":DEL]" to show up right there where I put "<del>"
and "</del>". I bring up the level of DIV and SPAN only to say that this
element is special, in that it both within paragraph and around paragraph
is valid--that is unusual, and maybe that aspect is misinterpreted.

Right now I made up a small test, and found that Lynx would wrap neither
H3 nor a paragraph within "[DEL:" and ":DEL]", only text within a paragraph,
as if DEL only on the level of SPAN were valid.
