My apologies for the bad timestamp on the previous send of this message. 
  Fixed time and resending to help the flow.  And a good opportunity to 
add one comment:

Chris, I understand that you would not say "bag what the translators 
wanted, just put a <p> marker at the top of each chapter."  It seems we 
both think the translators (I do not hold the same regard for the 
typesetters) meant something very specific, were not idiots, and we 
should preserve their intent.

We are of the same spirit.
