      Description

      HTML line breaks (<br>, <BR>, <br/>, ...) seem to be removed during extraction of content from HTML-Files. They need to be replaced with a empty space.

      Test-File:
      <html>
      <head>
      <title>Test mit HTML-Zeilenschaltungen</title>
      </head>
      <p>
      word1<br>word2<br/>
      Some other words, a special name like linz<br>and another special name - vienna
      </p>
      </html>

      The Solr-content-attribute contains the following text:
      Test mit HTML-Zeilenschaltungen
      word1word2
      Some other words, a special name like linzand another special name - vienna

      So we are not able to find the word "linz".

      We use the ExtractingRequestHandler to put content into Solr. (wiki.apache.org/solr/ExtractingRequestHandler)
