I'm no expert, but here's what I understand:

<br> is still just a line break. So you might separate what used to be  
paragraphs with <br><br>. It's a different way of thinking about how  
to code your layout. If you want less or more space between you might  
use something like <br><span style="line-height:20px;">&nbsp;<br></ 
span> ... Seems like a hack, because it is, but that's the state of  

<br/> is xhtml (you have to close every tag), but that isn't relevant  
to email coding which is plain old html.

I don't think validation requires use of a <p> tag. Also not sure if  
validation is so important in this context.

I also forgot to mention NOT to use <font> tags. Use inline styles  
instead. So it isn't totally 1997.
