Excellent Joerg! The only place this would not work is if I have a paragraph element with only a Link element in it, such as:
<p><Link href="blah.html">This is a link</Link></p>
I need those to pass through the test and be wrapped in a p tag. Otherwise, it catches everything else I need!
Thank you! That gives me great direction...

If there is any descendant node (including elements,
comments, PIs, text), which is not element Link or element Media,
create <p> in output tree.

Here is what I have so far. It only looks to see
media element or a media element wrapped by a link element exists, but does not consider if there is
text node after a media or link element.
