[RCU] Line Spacing Issue in the HTML Text Editor

Sure, that's fair. Was just providing the option of manipulating the <p> tag without having to change to <br>. If BRs are the preferred method, then by all means. Should this not be the default configuration then instead of the non-consistant way?

I didn't say it was a good idea, just that it could be done. While I also
think that paragraph tags are a more logical choice, it is quite different
than many other mail clients. For example, both Apple's Mail.app and
Thunderbird do line breaks by default, not paragraphs. So if consistency
between clients is important, the BR tag may be a better choice.
