Re: Empty <P> Tags For Spacing

Curious but aren't the <hr> and <br> semantic elements a good use case for providing visual separation? Empty elements such as <p> seem like a work around bred out of ignorance of WCAG compliant semantic design, in my humble opinion.

I'm not blessed with physical sight anymore but I certainly respect the needs of visually oriented people. Aren't there WCAG guidelines defining how to provide fully WCAG compliant digital documents without using empty elements?
