So, <br> has been deprecated in the proposed XHTML 2.0 spec
in favor of the <line> element. And while I can appreciate the tendency to lean toward logical rather than physical styles, the deprecation of <br> for <line> leads to an inflexibility...
The line element represents a sub-paragraph. It is intended as a structured replacement for the br element. It contains a piece of text that when visually represented should start on a new line, and have a line break at the end.
Um, I use <br> because I want ONE break, not two. If I wanted two, I'd use a block level element, like a <div>. I must be missing something here.
