It does, actually - by design. You need to specify the  
not-to-be-swallowed parts [1]. Having done that, it works amazingly  
well & gives you a nice mixture of rich-text-like, yet  
structured-enough authoring, and the piece of mind that 1) you can  
safely edit the same document using both IE and Mozilla without huge  
reformatting issues, and 2) XHTML-like output is usable as XSLT input  
without nasty clean-up stylesheets.
