Don't get heated over paragraphs - the logic is clear!

HTML currently gives you:

a) paragraph breaks with <P>
b) forced line breaks with <BR>

In HTML+ existing documents will display OK as browsers can
infer any missing <P> tags, and the </P> tags *AREN'T NEEDED*

You also get the option to left/center/right align paragraphs and
to name each paragraph with a unique ID for link destinations.
This brings the web into step with common document formats, e.g.
Microsoft Word, and Framemaker which treat paragraphs as distinct
objects with defined properties. All other SGML formats work this
way too!
