Subject: nested HREFs - why a no-no?

Let's say I have a note (a footnote, for example) that refers to
something in the bibliography:

  <A HREF="Note">Blah, blah, blah.  See John Doe (<A HREF="#JohnDoe86">
  1986</A>: 5-17).</A>

Is this both outside the range of HTML *and* is it going to make brows-
ers choke?  Just out of curiosity I checked it out with Mosaic, and it
mostly works....
