Happy weekend everyone

Shouldn’t this code be altered? I mean; it is both invalid and you can’t use
<p> inside a <div> tag. 
      <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
          alt="Valid XHTML 1.1!" height="31" width="88" /></a>
Of course; those of the users who makes valid XHTML-pages can alter this by
themselves without problem, as Kynn Bartlett wrote. 

I know it was mentioned earlier in

To which Kynn Bartlett [kynn@idyllmtn.com] replied on May 28, 2004 at 02:24

you're smart enough to fix the problem. :)

However; how about replacing the <p>-tags with a <div>-tag?
