I'd like to be able to specify <br> within CSS1.

I think it could be done as

br { width: remaining }

(A few other properties would have to be added as well, I think.)

`remaining' would simply mean that it would take up all of the space left 
in the line, but no more.

We could alternatively define `remaining' to take a factor, such that 
`1remaining' would be adaquate for <br>, and `.5remaining' could be used 
to eat half the space remaining on the line.  However, I can't think of 
why this would be useful.
