Anne's new design shows that the above list is incomplete. Since 
paragraphs may appear in definitions, list items and table cells, which 
themselves may omit their end tags, the list of elements whose start 
tags closes 'p' needs to also include the elements whose start tag 
closes dd, li, td and th.
