Status: Additional Information Needed
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: This bug, as originally filed and then amended, postulated that
<wbr> and zwsp are equivalent, and asked for that to be clarified.  However,
per the current spec, they are not equivalent.  Making them equivalent is what
bug 9097 requests, and I've left that open for Hixie to review the evidence you
provided.

Could you please explain what this bug is supposed to do in addition to bug
9097?  If 9097 is fixed, <wbr> and zwsp will be defined as equivalent as
requested.  If 9097 is wontfixed, this bug is invalid because <wbr> and zwsp
are defined to *not* be equivalent: e.g., as now, <wbr> will be defined to
create a break even in <pre>.  So I don't get what this bug is asking for now.
