links doesn't deal well with html tags when the begin and /end tags 
have different case.  To wit,


looks alot different in links than in lynx.  Reading the page source 
shows that the <B> tags are ended with </b> tags ...

I currently see broken html like this:


<a href="mail_archive/200007/threads.html"<B>
               July 2000


The only error I currently see is due to non-standard html, not links misparsing
valid html.  Without the a href tag, the text is properly bold'ed.

Also checked behavior with elinks and lynx.

Change state to needinfo, please provide more details if you still see the same bug.
