<div>Reading the bug title, it sounds like the broken &lt;br/&gt; only appl=
ies to table cells spanning more than one column/row, so that may apply to =
fewer situations.<br><br>Does &lt;p/&gt; work? This would give a weak worka=
round to the broken &lt;br/&gt;.<br><br>I think the &lt;center&gt; would be=
 more commonly used.<br><br>brew<br></div><font color=3D"#990099">-----lon-=

about creating an attribute for &lt;table&gt; like TeXwidth for<br>&lt;img&=

e?<br>...just an idea. &nbsp;I'm also wondering if this is a bad idea and i=
f users want<br>the other mode, maybe they can use &lt;web&gt; and &lt;tex&=
