there is no in-between... it falls under the heading immediately 
preceeding it...

under <h2>moe</h2>...

by your argument, the second paragraph (and so on) under every 
heading would fall out of the hierarchy... imagine what that would 
do to a page... you only delimit the closing text by not indenting it, 
which doesn't matter to a renderer...

in short, your code example is wrong if you want that last <p> to 
be its own section...

glad you're not talking to me on that one...
