Definitely closer.   However this is still slightly different because it
changes the layout of explicit line-break such as <BR>.  This is a minor point
and probably insignificant to the issue.  I can't see any reason why this
would be desired.

I suppose a designer would then have to make sure his margins, paddings,
borders, and baseline vertical alignment to make sure it does not appear to be
in a block.
