[Mediawiki-l] Forcing A Line Break

I use the html line break "<br>".
Works for me.  Just put one at the end of each line you'd like to break.

For example, if you want the following to appear on your page:

line one
line two 

it will appear as follows if you type it that way:
line oneline two


line one<br>
line two

will appear as:

line one
line two

Also note that an empty line (no spaces even) is interpreted as a line
break.  So the following:

line one

line two

will appear as typed.  One can only hope for a wysiwyg editor.
