Related, how well supported are HTML5 elements?

The big problem with HTML5 is that it has error recovery defined for every syntax error. That means the average HTML5 coder is going to code broken HTML and have it interpreted consistently by all the mainstream browsers. Lynx's parser doesn't conform to that model, so I doubt that it will ever be compliant with HTML5, as it won't have the mandated error recovery behaviour.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
