the first P encountered closes the <p class=pad>

you can get around this by defining the styles that you currently
have in the pad class to the P tag itself

of course, then it will apply to all Ps in the document

you can get around this by defining a div for your content Ps

e.g.   #content p { styles here }

this, in turn, might mean that you have to insert

   <div id="content>

around your content area
