Actually, I'm not kidding, there really WASN'T a /p tag.

Heh. Yeah, that was back before there was a BR tag too. In fact, the P tag basically functioned as a BR. But by the time the first HTML RFC was published, BR was ubiquitous and paragraph breaks became paragraphs and were no longer empty elements. Sure, the /P end tag has remained optional but that's just no excuse. ;-)

Now, if I could just teach myself to write those BRs as <br/>. . .

[GotToBTru]: yeah, you mentioned it could not handle signatures
[Corion]: And so far I like signatures and nobody has yet come up to me and screamed at me for implementing a source filter to handle them even on early Perl versions ;)
[Corion]: I should re-prod tsee about the Filter::Simple branches that he might want to merge or that I should merge so he can do a release ;-D
