Bravo! The <p></p> pairing and the <br /> are xml compliant, thus geared
for "the future" while the deprecated leading <p> and <br> are not.
Peter seems to be the only one who expressed this; apologies if I missed
it in someone else's post.

Small point, but a significant one. All new markup should IMO be xml
compliant to save you time, money and hassle in the future. OTOH some of
us are hoping to make the big $$$$ fixing documents that are not! (Using
Ruby to parse them, of course (*_*] )
