I can't write < br > (without spaces) in notes. It's always replaces by a 'new line'.

See for example
http://www.php.net/manual/de/function.nl2br.php (trevor at verite dot com / php at fendforyourself dot com)
or http://www.php.net/manual/de/function.htmlspecialchars.php
(the last comment 20 dec 2002, note in end)

PS: <br \> seems to work properly

Try writing &amp;lt;br&amp;gt; - I guess the form-input isn't changed, which means this shows up as literal text in HTML - in which that particular string has meaning and is interpreted by most browsers.

Hugo.

Grmbl.
I counted on these tags also being expanded - they weren't.

Try &lt;br&gt;

Hugo.

Here is where the problem occurs:
http://www.php.net/source.php?url=/include/layout.inc

/* this 'fixing' code will go away eventually. */
$fixes = array('<br>','<p>','</p>');
reset($fixes);
while (list(,$f)=each($fixes)) {
    $text=str_replace(htmlspecialchars($f), $f, $text);
    $text=str_replace(htmlspecialchars(strtoupper($f)), $f, $text);
}

Thats a good reason to use <br />. We can't fix that anyway.

Thank you.
