Subject: Line breaks in para: literallayout unsuitable

Hello all,

Sometimes it is of interest to make a paragraph lighter by inserting a line 
break -- like two paragraphs but without an empty line inbetween. Judging 
from a google search, the correct way of doing this is to encapsulate the 
text in the literallayout element.

A problem with this(if I got everything right) is it interprets everything 
literally -- if a paragraph is word wrapped in the source file this will show 
up too. literallyout is quite constraining for inserting a line break.

Why doesn't a simple <line-break/> element exist(with a better name)? It would 
be possible to express in a logical way(just as much as para). Why doesn't it 

Or what have I missed?
