    Hey, drtanz... not sure if you noticed this in your forum searches but you can put <p align="none">&nbsp;</p> in your HTML code to get that empty paragraph (well, kinda empty... that " " is a space) to stay. However, if you switch back to the visual view, it disappears again. Certainly not a permanent solution but it's a workaround... one that I'm currently having to use.

    That sounds like some annoying content filtering that WordPress does. Try this plugin: http://urbangiraffe.com/plugins/disable-wpautop/

    I just found an answer to this problem.. If you install this tinymce-advanced plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tinymce-advanced/
    there is an option to stop removing the <p> and breaks and show them in the html editor.

    There are loads of posts about this problem, WP should add it to their FAQ.
