    Well, actually I had checked the archives before posting, and found
    that a _similar_ issue was discussed in the past - that one involving
    the <DIV> tag, and the way <DIV>...</DIV> are used by Microsoft tools to
    delimit paragraphs in place of <P> or <BR>. You are probably referring
    to this thread:

    I found a thread about <STYLE> too, but the issue involved was not the
    one I reported as a bug:

    There seems to be no previous mention whatsoever of my specific case in
    the archives, which puzzles me: am I really the first one to notice
    this gross misbehaviour (maybe due to its neglectable impact on rendered
    content in most cases) or am I missing something?
