The current content model of <cell> is macro.paraContent; I suggest that it be changed to macro.specialPara, to make it the same as <item>, on the grounds that lists and tables are very similar beasts. The effect of the current situation is that <cell> can contain lists or element Specs, but not <p>.

I cite EEBO http://gateway.proquest.com/openurl?ctx_ver=Z39.88-2003&res_id=xri:eebo&rft_id=xri:eebo:citation:52211822 as evidence for the existence of paragaphs in cells.

    Seconded. If list items can contain paragraphs (which is more counter-intuitive to my mind), the certainly cells should be able to. I can't connect to that EEBO example, but I can picture a table with cells containing multiple paragraphs with no difficulty.

    I see no objection to this either.

    the only difference between paraContent and specialPara is the following elements

    ab
    eTree
    forest
    graph
    l
    listForest
    p
    schemaSpec
    sp
    spGrp
    tree
    u

    so the distinction is quite subtle. I am making the change now. if it doesnt break, and there is no shouting, I will close this ticket.
