yes, i agree with you there... i can't find anything that would 
suggest otherwise, either...

ahhh... see, i wasn't thinking about multi-paragraph definitions... 
the occassional <br> is no biggie, but i try to avoid huge blocks of 
text in my lists... but yes, i have had many paragraphs within a 
<blockquote>, but i think i used <br>s... probably not the best, but 
again, i have trouble nesting <p>s conceptually and justifying it...
