Yes, sometimes, it seems I am imagining things... :)

There are parts that I have looked at and think I more or less 
understand, and then there are parts where I have some vague idea
how they work or what they do, and then there is all that other stuff..

No doubt about that.  (But I haven't even tried to really understand
how alignments work, or styles, or...) I wasn't thinking about
anything HText-ish or HTML.c-ish, but about SGML.c and HTMLDTD.c and
that there doesn't seem to be a general way to handle optional close
tags at the level of SGML.c.  (It maybe there, and I have totally
missed it.)  I thought that would be required to properly "undo" the
alignment, apparently I was wrong :)

Also I noticed that </P> is treated as <P>.  I imagined that the
word Lynxism would fit here..
