This is illegal.  font elements require an explicit close tag and
are considered inline elements.  p is a block element.  Therefore
the parser is forced into error recovery when it sees the p without
the font having been closed.

To the person from Microsoft, this is one of the typical errors
produced by GUI authoring tools.
