I've put together a page that is all plain text. I entered all the text in the editor on the "create new page" / "Edit page", working with the "visual" tab. I then clicked the "HTML" tab, wanting to enter an extra blank line before the farewell greeting. I used the br/ tag for that.
I then clicked the update button and noticed the following:
1) An extra blank line didn't occur on the published page.
2) When I clicked the visual tab and then went back to the HTML tab, the br/ tag that I entered was no longer there.
I would appreciate your help with entering an extra blank line.
