I believe that this is the result of mis-implementation in graphical
browsers.  I believe that the original intention was that br behaved 
like .br in troff and the equivalent TeX operator, and caused the
minimum vertical motion necessary for the next printable material to
start at the beginning of a line, e.g. none if the writing point was
already there.
