    Description

      It used to be that I could achieve a valid <br/> tag by saying

      html.html {
      body

      { br null }

      }

      (in a groovlet, e.g. from netbeans or tomcat)

      But now instead, it outputs <br></br> which firefox flags as invalid HTML. It also gives me two line breaks instead of one, so there is no way to get a single line break that I could find, other than using

      mkp.yieldUnescaped('<br/>')

      I'm not sure of all the ins and outs of valid XHTML and doctypes (I'm not using one) but at the very least, the 'br null' behavior of generating <br/> was useful.

      Thanks,
