Thanks for your diligent work in documenting these problems, Felix.

Having read back through this thread I think you are reporting two
problems with the website:

The lilypond website is not w3c compliant.

The lilypond website does not interoperate with the lynx web browser due
to ellipses in some intra-site links.

Is that a concise summary, Felix?

Phil has pointed out that fixing it is complicated (and probably also
complex) job.

So, devs and documentation authors, would you like me to accept this
(minor) bug report and create a tracker?

The tracker could be "document interoperabilty and standards compliance"
or it could be "fix the web site", you decide.

In the absence of any opinions I would opt for the former.
