Lynx doesn't implement style sheets.  Quoting from the HTML 4.0 documentation:

   The DIV and SPAN elements, in conjunction with the id and class
   attributes, offer a generic mechanism for adding structure to
   documents. These elements define content to be inline (SPAN) or
   block-level (DIV) but impose no other presentational idioms on the
   content. Thus, authors may use these elements in conjunction with
   style sheets, the lang attribute, etc., to tailor HTML to their own
   needs and tastes.

What you're showing appears to fall into that category: things not in
HTML 4.0 which may be associated with DIV/SPAN.
