    Well, I'm not a boy and am having a lot of trouble translating what you are saying, but I *think* I have a similar problem. I'm entering
    for a line break (return). When I save the draft and preview the page, there is no return and the code is
    , which I'm guess is the xhtml version of
    . This would be fine, but the line isn't breaking. Does it need and end tag? Sorry - I'm not code savvy at all. Thanks for your help!

    Well, axewww, I solved my issue - not sure if it's the answer to yours. You can't read the above because I didn't think about notating the code with the "code" tag. <br /> is xhtml for <br>. My template is xhtml, so it converts the tags. I solved it with a couple of <p></p> tags instead. Good luck!
