Just use <block/> as the equivalent of a <br>.

I've done this in multi-line headings, or figure and caption combinations.

For example:

    <block text-align="center" ..blah.. ..blah... >
       <external-graphic .....>
       Caption text goes here

A block breaks the block-progression-direction of the flow, so an empty 
block has the same behaviour that is triggered in HTML as a <br>.

I hope this helps.
