[Lynx-dev] Google Mail trouble: `div' elements within `a' elements' bodies

Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/22.1 (gnu/linux)
(It's hardly the right list to discuss the problem I'm having,
but well, I know no other list or group where it may fit.)
A few months ago, the ``Basic HTML'' interface of Google Mail
was changed so that it now uses constructs like:
<div><font size=1><font color=#006633>
Lynx (as of 2.8.5 debian 2sarge2.2) seems to render this part as
appropriate. However, the link is inactive.
As per HTML 4.01, the block-level elements, such as DIV, are not
allowed within the A element contents , so it appears that
it's the Google Mail coders which are to blame. I've tried to
report the issue , but I've seen no reaction upon it ever
I wonder, does any newer version of Lynx ``support'' the
constructs like the above, and if there's no such version, may I
hope that the feature to digest such constructs in a Google
Mail-friendly fashion will be added to Lynx in the near future?
Or is there any better way to report the problems with Google
Mail than the one I've undertaken with ?
