The reason I am so against using a <html:div> is, that I could imageine,
that there are some accessibility applications, that semantically
evaluate the HTML elements. And a <html:p> is something completly
different to a <html:div>. Former one is within the context of text, it
has an defined meaning. The <html:div>, however, is more of a overall
grouping element, mostly used for layout purposes.

I would even go so far as to say, that HTML achieves the desired
seperation of content (<p>) from style (<div>), since <html:div>, as
mentioned, is mostly used for design purposes and programmatic access
(ie: DHTML).

Sigh... ;-(

I still think, that ODF should try to find a soultion for this. Call me
conservative, but I like elementary definitions more than "overall
fits". (BTW: I would be very glad if someone pointed me to a document on
the web, where I can find (un)ordered lists being parts of sentences in
texts, that got revised by a professional editor. As I said, I am not
familiar with mathematical texts, so I do not object that and I trust
the fine people in this mailing-list. But I would like to see it, out of
 a personal interest, that I have: I'm a literature afficionado and text
is juice to me. :-)
