I think of it as being like big parentheses ...
whole lots of stuff
going on for lines and lines
Everything between is subject to the contents of the DIV, unless overridden
locally. You could use it, for example, to set up a section of paragraphs
that were all single spaced instead of double. Or to do an indented
block-quote kind of section with some complex stuff in it.
The other way I think of it is is, Oh, well, so that's how you do it. OK,
I'll get over it ... ;->
