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.
