    I believe you are seeing the results of - yet another - hack to

    they are trying to get extra space on top of the cell, and - as we
    all know - a <P> 'makes' extra space.

Personally, I don't quite see what the problem is.  First, it's perfectly
valid xhtml to have paragraphs inside of a td.  Second, what if there are
semantically two paragraphs in side the td?  How would you propose
distuinguishing them if without <p>?
