Hi,

A couple of questions that have been niggling me for a while now.

1. Reference to original articles

I quite often revamp news articles into HTML for reference purposes 
on my pages (generally announcements and that kind of thing).
I have recently started to add LINKs to various parts, and was 
wondering what I should use for a reference back to the article. The 
closest I think to what I want currently is:

	<link href="news:article-id" rev=citation>

Is there something better?


2. <p>..</p> mixed with <ul>..</ul> etc

One of the things that I get confused over is when to use </p>, if at 
all. For example, I might be writing something and then make a couple 
of points:

	<p>
	blah blah, for example:
	<ul>
	<li>one
	<li>two
	</ul>
	and then blah blah.
	</p>

Would that be correct, or should it really be a:

	<p>
	blah blah, for example:
	</p>
	<ul>
	<li>one
	<li>two
	</ul>
	<p>
	and then blah blah.
	</p>

This is a simple example of course. Other examples are page lists, 
which might be:

	<h2>     </h2>
	<ul>
	<li>
	</ul>

Should a <p> .. </p> be there too?

Should I even bother with </p>?!!!

Thanks for any pointers!
Chuck
