I believe that the HTML code generated by JSPWiki could and should be done better. My main concern is about the proper generation of paragraph tags (<p></p>). For example I'm editing a page to read:

This is my first paragraph.

This is my second paragraph.
This get renderd like:
<div id="pageContent"> 
This is my first paragraph.
<p>This is my second paragraph.</p>

This is actually wrong IMHO. Both paragraphs should be <p>-tagged.

A similar problem is about paragraphs and headings. Assume you have this Wiki notation:

!!Section 1

Paragraph 1

!!Section 2

This gets rendered like:

<h3>..Section 1 ..</h3>
<p>Paragraph 1</p>
<p><h3>..Section 2..</h3></p>

Here JSPWiki embraces the second heading with a <p>-tag where it shouldn't: A heading is n o t a paragraph.

This kind of unexpected HTML rendering (there are a couple of further issues) makes it extremly difficult to create a Wiki with a nice layout.

Please which version you're talking about - 2.1 has a far better HTML renderer than 2.0...

I believe after testing 2.2.28 for a while now that this bug should be closed for the current stable release.

I agree. Closing.
