You mean like Don's HTML example?

<p><b>This Paragraph Has a title.</b> This is a test. This is only a 
test. Had this been a real example, it would have made more sense.</p>

This could work, and it would be easy to implement. Is it fair to assume 
that any <formalpara> will have only one <para> element? If it doesn't, 
would it be unreasonable to clump it all in one paragraph? From a 
semantic POV, I think that would be reasonable. Maybe I'll add a newline 
element, but keep it all in the same semantic paragraph. Like this:

    <info> <title>Foo</title> </info>
    <para> Bar. </para>
    <para> Biz. </para>


   <bold>This is the title</bold>
   Bar. <newline/>

I'll give some thought to the <newline/>

Thanks for all the help!
