There's probably a way to do it using %bottom-margin=0.5em% instead
of >>bottom-margin=0.5em<<, but I can't come up with an answer off
the top of my head.

If we had a "paragraph markup" in place, it would be something like:

    P: %p bottom-margin=0.5em% The first paragraph stuff
    P: %p bottom-margin=0.5em% The second paragraph, with 0.5em
    between the two paragraphs
    P: %p bottom-margin=0.5em% The third paragraph, again with 0.5em.

...but I've forgotten the latest status of the markup to use for
marking paragraphs (and thus PmWiki doesn't have a paragraph
markup yet).
