Of course, that assumes you want the extra line spacing that <P> gives
you. If not, you have to resort to something like this (which does just
what it's supposed to in NSb5):

<P>in Just-<br>
spring<SPACER TYPE="horizontal" SIZE=70> when the world is mud-<BR>
luscious the little<br>
lame baloonman

<P>whistles<SPACER TYPE="horizontal" SIZE=50>far<SPACER
TYPE="horizontal" SIZE=50>and wee


I admit SPACER is pretty clunky in there, but if anyone can tell me how
to do that with a style sheet I'm all ears.
