Yes, didn't you get the special memo that the W3C sent out? Unclosed
tags will result in the Standards Gestapo seizing your server and confining you to the use of EBCDIC.
Seriously, there's a move to a new standard for web coding called XHTML, which is HTML as an XML flavor. XML has rigorous criteria of validity, so HTML isn't kosher by default, and the unclosed tags (

(which is the equivalent of
). But close the
p>'s around your paras. That and quote all your attribute values, and you're almost to full XHTML compliance!
That and about $8 will buy you a cup of Starbucks.
