sorry, I was thinking in terms of XHTML, which is what all the HTML I've
produced in the last few months have been - when you output XML, ou specify
output method as XML, rather than HTML - hence <br/> not being converted to

With every provessor I've tried, when you  specify the html output method, a
<br/> in the source file turns into <br> in the html output.

If you wanted to force it and still use xml output (I don't know why), note
that <br class="none"/> is just one example.  Any attribute at all will put
a space after the "<br", and that's enought to make browsers happy.  So you
could use <br dummy='x'/> and it would work just as well.
