The problem is not with Lynx, but some bad comments on that page.
Comments should start with <!-- and end with -->.  This page has a line
similar to the following:

<!-- table><! tr><! td>

The first tag starts a comment, and technically it's never ended.
Netscape 1.x allowed comments like these.  Lynx 2.5 and up do have a mode
for dealing with such bad comments.  Use the ' key to change the mode to
historical comment parsing, and you can view the page.  Look at the online
help and the key list 'k' key for more info on Lynx's method's of comment
parsing, and send a complaint to the person producing such bad HTML. :)
