Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------


That's annoying, as the paragraphs within each definition are real, structural
not just presentational ones. I'm trying to get the clients to move in the
structural HTML

If you can have sub-lists within list items, why not other block level tags?

Subject:  Re: [thelist] Paragraphs within lists

i use <br> tags... i don't like to nest block-level elements of that
sort... as far as i see it, a <dl> is analagous to a <p>, it just
implies different content... as such, i wouldn't nest any <p>s...



would be mine...
