AS: Thanks to CC me any reply, as I am not subscribed to this list.


Using lynx-2.8.6_rel-4 (on Gentoo Linux), Lynx does not handle links 
containing some block elements (`<a href="#"><div>Foo</div></a>` does 
not work -"Foo" is on a new line, as normal text, that is, it is not 
styled, and cannot get the focus-, while `<a href="#"><p>Foo</p></a>` 
does work).

While putting block elements, in inline elements, surely is incorrect, 
in W3C HTML, it should be supported, for compatibility with broken 
websites (I encountered one, today -and surely told the owner to use 
<span>, if it was really needed, but it's probably not the only website 
doing this).

Thanks to anyone who will take the time to implement this.
