This probably an HTML parser bug/feature. It appears on both M5 and M6, invoked as either "viewer" or "apprunner". I use Debian GNU/Linux, libc6. If there is a <P> tag between <A HREF=...> and <\A> then the link shows up as normal text and not as a link. I do not know if this is valid HTML but it works with Navigator 4.51. I encountered it in the El Pais website (http://www.elpais.es) which uses it to mark its headlines as links. With M6 the headlines fail to show as links (M5 crashes). To reproduce, view the page. Here is minimal source. <HTML> <HEAD> </HEAD> <BODY> <A HREF="foo"> control</A><P> <A HREF="foo"><P>error </A><P> </BODY> </HTML>

This is in fact terrifically awful HTML. However, it now works in 5.x for compatibility reasons.
