On a related topic, Opera is the only (major?) one I know of which  
supports line-break in CSS

Example: <http://blog.empyree.org/?2005/09/29/1896->

Look for this strong

Sarkozy Ⅰer http://bix.enix.org/index.php/2005/07/30/753- 
sarkozy-1er. It has a line break, although even Mac clipboard doesn't  
recognize it.
