In HTML 3.2, the BODY element is defined as
<!ELEMENT BODY O O  %body.content>
Its contents is listed as
<!ENTITY % body.content "(%heading | %text | %block | ADDRESS)*">
and the %text bit in here is listed as
<!ENTITY % text "#PCDATA | %font | %phrase | %special | %form">
so #PCDATA is permitted inside BODY directly. IOW, you can have
plain text directly inside BODY.

I believe HTML 3.0 strict required all text to be inside a
block container, but HTML 3.2 does not appear to have such a
switch.
