Well, it's hard to say that it's "broken". It was never in there to
begin with.

The Platypus HTML parser only understands <b>, <strong>, <i>, <em>, <u>,
<link>, <super>, <sub>, <font>, <bullet>, <greek>, <para>, <unichar>,
and <onDraw>. The code in paraparser.py.

I don't think it would be rocket science to add <br>, since the thing
returns a list of line fragments.
