It's valid HTML:
 <textarea> is valid anywhere any inline element is valid:
<>.  Atrribute "type" for
<script> and element "style" are likewise standard, just rather newer than
Lynx's HTML knowledge.

So is there any reason for us to care that Lynx doesn't like our HTML?  We
aren't very well going to stop using stylesheets because Lynx doesn't like them.
