RE: xhtml and the p tag
Mark, This has not changed from HTML 4.0. All of your paragraphs in XHTML documents should be enclosed with <p>...</p> element delimiters. Since the <p> element is itself a block level element, it cannot itself contain any block level elements. The construction <p/> has to my knowledge never been acceptable markup in either HTML or XHTML documents.
