(Lynx 2.8.9dev.11)

As per `man lynx`, -xhtml_parsing should work:

                  tells Lynx that it can ignore certain tags which
                  have no content in an XHTML 1.0 document.  For
                  example "<p/>" will be discarded.

$ lynx -xhtml_parsing
lynx: Invalid Option: -xhtml_parsing
USAGE: lynx [options] [file]
Options are:
-xhtml-parsing    enable XHTML 1.0 parsing (off)

I imagine that it would be 'better' to get -xhtml_parsing working
correctly, rather than simply amend man page to include -xhtml-parsing,
as all(?) other options seem to be -foo_bar, not -baz-qux. That
said, however, -xhtml-parsing seems to date from 2008-09-21
(2.8.7dev.10) (in CHANGES), so perhaps the intention is to use
hyphen, not underscore?
