    dave,
    Could you post a link to the site in question so others can have a peek at it?

    That's the post in question.

    That's exactly my problem; I try to add the close tag in the post editor, either by simply pressing carriage return, or typing /p explicitly. Either way, it doesn't stick. The editor doesn't save it, it just disappears and the problem persists.
    I'm running WordPress 1.0, in case you were wondering.

    Dave,
    Here I go again... <slaps forehead> re-reading your original post I see that you described the problem perfectly well. I'm not sure exactly what has caused this, but I personally have had similar validation issues. Basically I used DreamWeaver to directly edit the page, and it seemed to fix the problem. I wish I knew what the cause was, but I do also know that it doesn't happen often. I wonder if there is some kind of hidden escape character or some stupid thing in there making a mess of it.
    Craig.

    Do you have use_balanceTags turned on under Options->General Blog Settings? In general I find that things like this tend to wonk up any entries that have real HTML formatting code in them, so I always turn them off. If you already have it turned off, then there must be something else in the post clean-up/replacement code that is breaking stuff.
