Yes. Just like the equivalent HTML code would do (with e.g. <b> instead of <text:span>). I think most people would use <text:span> like <b> in HTML, i.e. inline in the paragraph text, without newlines or indentation. So the perceived inconsistency between the above two examples is a bit academical, in real life I think it's fine. And of course what matters most is a clear spec and compliant implementations; if all implementations behave the same then there is no surprise. -- David Faure, email@example.com, sponsored by Trolltech to work on KDE, Konqueror (http://www.konqueror.org), and KOffice (http://www.koffice.org).
