HTML IS allowed, but because b2evolution is written to the XHTML standard (either transitional or strict), certain -old style- HTML tags are deprecated (no longer used).
<br> is one of those tags.
XHTML standards say that each tag must be closed (i.e. have a corresponding </close> tag).
However, some tags (like <hr>, <img> and, in your case, <br>) DON'T.
XHTML provides for this allowing such tags to SELF-CLOSE. To self close these tags, end it with a [space][backslash][and whatever the name is for a sideways hat '>'] (dunno the correct name :oops: )
Advice? Learn XHTML ... it's gonna be the 'new way'. ;)
Hope this helps.
PS - If you want, have a peek at /conf/_formatting.php (that's the file that lists all of the allowed tags)
