Indeed, that's always the way I learned it - if you just want a space,
you can use <P> as a separator, but if you want anything else, you must
use it as an encasement, and pair it with </P>....  That's one thing I
insist on my helpers doing is using encasement paragraphs all the time.
Doesn't make me a lot of friends, but it does help our pages pass 
validation. :)
