I know Fote has alrady commented and fixed the glitch, but I wanted to
pick a small nit here.  The <hr> is actually what ends the <p> as far as
the DTD is concerned.  This is one major problem I saw in Claris Homepage
and one other HTML editor (Navigator Gold?) was that they put HR's in as:


Which is TOTALLY invalid and causes Webtechs to cuss up a storm (well, not
really :) ).  I mentioned it to a friend who was using a beta of Claris
Homepage 1.0, and he said he had noticed it but never mentioned it to
them, so I'm not sure if they corrected it in commercial releases...
Claris was also doing something strange by storing the editor window
location in the HTML document with something like:


rather than in a comment... <sigh>

I'm reasonably sure that it was Navigator Gold that also exhibited the
<hr> problem, and I reported it as a bug, but no idea if anything will
be/has been done.  (I think I reported it for 3.0, and 3.01 is out now,
but I haven't tried editing with it.)
