This has been discussed before.  Perhaps we could move to a configure
option so that a default can be chosen at compile time.

At one time, TagSoup was the only parser.  Not sure when SortaSGML
won out.  (Sure was a good choice, though! :)

Doesn't TagSoup mode render that snippet correctly for you?  It does
for me.  Maybe some other setting is conflicting?

Lynx has two parsers.  AFAIK, there is no other browser around that has
that ability.  A comment like Lynx "insists on adhering rigidly to the
standards of 1995" means nothing to me.  Those "standards of 1995" are
the standards of 2004, too.  If you have to have error recovery then please
use TagSoup mode!  (And make it your default by editing lynx.cfg.)
