Yes, all is well in HTML source code. But the user should not be forced
to search the HTML source when MathJax does not render, in my opinion.

Yes, `lynx' is breaking it as "words in prose", which is what you see.
That does not work for more complex LaTeX, such as longer derivations,
more complex systems of equations, and so on.
Consider the following proof, rendered by `lynx':
\begin{align*} & \lnot (P \land Q) \equiv \lnot P \lor \lnot Q \\[1ex] &
\quad \equiv ((\lnot (P \land Q) ) \implies (\lnot P \lor \lnot Q))
\land ((\lnot P \lor \lnot Q ) \implies (\lnot (P \land Q))) \\[1ex] &
\quad \equiv (\lnot ( \lnot (P \land Q)) \lor (\lnot P \lor \lnot Q))
\land (\lnot (\lnot P \lor \lnot Q) \lor (\lnot (P \land Q))) \\[2ex] &
\lnot (P \lor Q) \equiv \lnot P \land \lnot Q \\[1ex] & \quad \equiv
((\lnot (P \lor Q)) \implies (\lnot P \land \lnot Q)) \land ((\lnot P
\land \lnot Q) \implies (\lnot (P \lor Q))) \\[1ex] & \quad \equiv
(\lnot (\lnot (P \lor Q)) \lor (\lnot P \land \lnot Q)) \land (\lnot
(\lnot P \land \lnot Q) \lor (\lnot (P \lor Q))), \end{align*}
The original, as formatted by the author, is perfectly readable.

Correct. But there is a loss of immediate readability.
