	Currently, there is only one textual element (what is a paragraph)
which could have "style hints" associated with it, per document, <BODY>

	There is a strong habit for authors to think if the <P> as a

as seperator will be *the* most misunderstood idea. 

	Frankly, I am surprised that it was not defined as such to begin with.
