Apologies for the immediate self-reply. It seems that the issue is that Lynx 
does not support the new HTML5 nesting rules, which allows what were formerly 
block-level elements inside of what were formerly inline-level elements, since 
HTML5 has now completely separated layout from presentation.

As a workaround I’ll probably end up changing those nested <div>s into <span>s 
anyway since it’s more semantically-sound, but this is probably still something 
that should be fixed at some point, since the HTML specification has changed in 
this regard.
