CSS text-align:justify; and html <br /> do not work well together. This is
less a bug than a nuisance. When a browser sees a <br /> it breaks the line
there and left aligns the line it is on, which is normally not the desired
result. for the <br /> we need something like either <br wrap='yes'> or <br
style='wrap:yes'>. The work around to this problem is to put lines between 
<span class='word-spacing: ,,,> </span> elements, but that is ugly.
