So the idea is to allow for changes in mark-up via .po files?

Also, I don't see the mark-up being consistently included inside t()
calls in other modules either - a simple grep produced 112 lines
(mostly in hook_help) that would be violating the <p> tags inside t()
calls rule, and I'm sure there are more. So I'm not certain what the
best practices are in this regard.

Anyways, I really haven't looked into all this in detail - but if you
can link me to some documentation on this, that will be excellent. I
don't see anything related mentioned under "coding standards" in the

Thanks in advance :)
