I am not referring to the changes document. Instead to the reference on this list that the patch would be included in the next edition of lynx. Granted we had this discussion in mid July, but is it a part of lynx or not?

I recall, perhaps when the last announcement of the lynx upgrade, that t here 
is a plug in for html5?

The last mention of HTML 5 in the CHANGES file is:

 HTML5_CHARSETS whose default value was not marked properly -TD

(That's from 2012-02-12 (2.8.8dev.10)).

…but HTML 5 is a major revamp of HTML. It throws in a new parsing algorithm, a 
pile of new elements, and a bucket of JavaScript APIs. Large portions of it are 
not the sort of things that could be handled by a plugin.

It isn't sensible to treat it as a monolithic thing to be implemented as a 
single unit (nobody else is doing that) and any questions about browser support 
for HTML 5 are better addressed at the individual feature level.
