Anyways the linebreak would be still a cool thing
we currently don't have
There's <br>, no?
Hm well there is "<a href" too... ;-) But none likes writing it, wikisyntax
much easier (and causes less input errors).
The same is with br. There are several possibilities writing br. The correct
one is <br /> but you can see <br> all around. A correct nice br has 6
characters. \\ would be just two and there's no doubt about the syntax.
But there's another heavily used br style:
<br style="clear:both;" />
This is equal to a page break you can often find after a chapter in a book. In
Wikipedia for example it is often used in order to clearly separate different
article objects (for example navigation bars use it very often) or article
some article chapters, where free flow of elements into the next chapter
would cause layout confusion.
So how about \- for chapter break aka <br style="clear:both;" />?
\\ and \- would be a cool thing and would be extensively used (even in
discussions I sometimes need a br cause a full empty line is visually too
much separation and makes people think that these were two different people).
Just look into random Wikipedia articles. Br in thes two variants (very often
with wrong html syntax) is the most used html element not covered by
