Konqueror and LFS websites

From time to time I'll search for text on a page, typically the string gets 
highlighted, but sometimes the search field will show a hit and nothing will be 
highlighted or the wrong word will be highlighted! I'm pretty sure this is a 
bug in Konqueror. It turns out that tidy can help.

I experience this on my LFS system and a debian squeeze, both KDE-4.4.x.

A search for intro on lfs or blfs dev will demonstrate both cases described. 
My local copies work properly with the modified tidy.conf.

I doubt this is worth an update to the book for, but I thought I'd share; this 
behaviour has been bothering me for longer than I can remember. That said, a 
switch to kwebkitpart, also works, if you can live without plugins, for now...
