  A problem with Lynx2.6 handling of <P ALIGN=...> shows up in the 
  following document:
  which is (in the relevant part) Wilbur-valid according to Webtechs, 
  Lynx uses right-alignment throughout the document, although that is 
  clearly not intended (neither by the human writer nor by the markup).
  Near the top it looks like this:
  <CENTER><IMG SRC="centc304wg2.jpg"></CENTER>
  <P ALIGN=Right>CEN/TC304/WG2 N617<br>
  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ -- Right-aligned container never closed explicitly

  Inserting a </P> before the <hr>, where it would be implied if P 
  was treated as a container element with optional close tag, "fixes"
  the display...
  I don't know whether the alignment handling should be changed, or
  how to do it, or whether that would create more problems than it
  solves.  Just pointing out a real example where it fails, I guess..
This looks like an excellent piece of detective work, the conclusion
of which is "It's a feature."  If people want to use <P> to impose
alignment, they can explicitly close it, IMHO.
