Thank you James,

You just answered Josh's question about my "div is better in this case than
p" assertion.  I knew there was a reason the hairs on my neck stood on end
when I saw a form inside of the p tags, though I couldn't quite put my
finger on it.  Josh, as a rule of thumb, you should only use the p tags for
actual paragraphs of content.  Obviously, the consortium realized this as
well when they created the nesting rules that James mentioned.  :)
