RE: Fw: Disturbing trend in tables

Actually FP will never generate this code (unless there's a bug we haven't
found). If the author has hand-coded it this way, we'll leave it alone, but
there's no way I know of to get FP to generate a <font> as anything but an
inline element.

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.
