Don't try this on any copy you want to be usable after you are done,

BUT YOU WERE WARNED that there are other valid things between the closing </p> and the Next <p> that should not be removed: The list is big, so I am not wasting my time typing it.
Cool! I've tried it on several epubs but it often selects p-tag stuff. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? I'm using Sigil 7, under various search settings. Earlier I tried exploiting the fact that angle brackets within paragraphs usually have a space before them with this regex:

\s<[^p/]

Which works, but only occasionally. It operates under the assumption that the epub is well-formed, with lines between non-p tags and spaces between other tags.

You're my hero! I'll definitely tinker with this regex some more!
