Line Breaks in World Factbook Entry?

I know this has been nutted out before, but I'm still wondering - how much effort would it actually take to leave Line Breaks in the World Factbook Entry?

I'm aware that it can be open to abuse, but I'm still for it. It'd make it so much easier to do things like News entry or showing URLs all nice-like...

To prevent abuse, maybe no more then two line breaks in a row?

And while we are taking issues with white-space, how come I can only have one space inbetween two words in the forums? And indents don't work either. It makes me angry when I do something like post indented code.

Too tired to adddress Factbook entry. Forums translate directly to HTML. HTML combines all standard whitespace to a single breaking space. I believe that the [code] tags preserve formatting though.

And thanks for the HTML info. *feels ashamed that he didn't know that :oops: *

Thanks for the info. I was just curious, as I said, I've been here a while, it's come up more than once...
