    Try typing:


    in non-WYSIWYG editor.

    It will result just like what you typed it. According to HTML, it should print "hello my friend", without line breaks, since it doesn't contain

    This makes it very inconvenient, e.g. to compose your article in a HTML editor, then copy & paste in WordPress's non-WYSWIYG editor, then find out that your posts has unwanted linebreaks all over it.

    If you want to disable this behavior, use this plugin:
