Correct, and when authoring, the DTD is what should be followed.
However, given the large amount (90%, per Sturgeon) of crap out there,
Lynx shouldn't necessarily follow the DTD, but should follow common
sense.  Users may well enter

<p>bla blahb albh
blah blahb labh

expecting that the rule will be in the middle of a paragraph.  I can't
imagine someone expecting a heading mid-paragraph, though.  (I'm sure
someone will prove me wrong.)

[More about editors snipped]

I have yet to see a good HTML editor that wasn't SGML-based; Claris's
is... non-Scottish, let's say; and NavGold is pretty bad, too.
