That would have been my preferred solution, but we never could get it
to work. The BR element, as implemented by Netscape long ago, behaves
in a strange way. It doesn't just cause a line break, it creates empty
lines as well, when there are several BRs in a row.

You cannot fix that by saying that 'line-break-after: always' inserts
both a zero-width space and a line break, because then

    A, B {line-break-after: always}

    <A>... <B>...</B></A>

would cause an empty line.

If anybody can come up with a definition where

    A {line-break-after: always}


causes no empty line, while

    A {line-break-after: always}


does, then I'd be happy.
