[WSG] Poetry needing block format but with line-breaks

2010-02-16 Thread Susie Gardner-Brown
Hi there

I¹m doing a poetry Œzine. Quite a lot of poets want to set the way the poem
looks as well as sounds; and one poem needs to be in block format, but with
lines breaking at specific words, so I have to use the line-break ...

Any suggestions on how I can do this? Otherwise I may have to put it in as a
pdf image unfortunately (with a link to a page with the poetry in regular
html but formatted as required) ...

Cheers
susie gardner-brown

This has come up a couple of times, and I think the controversial consensus is 
that poetry is one of the few times a br / tag is acceptable (since it's 
technically providing meaning to the paragraph).

This is some morebr /
I'm a poet to the max

My poetry is eternal, no?
