Cutting from code block removes <br>!


Recommended Posts

I'm a web developer and I'd love to store some snippets as code blocks but when I go to cut and paste from the Evernote code block to anywhere, even back into the Evernote code block, it strips out the <br> tags and inserts new line spaces! This is extremely frustrating and basically means the code snippet feature is unusable to me. 

Thanks

Are you coding in HTML
Evernote stores note data in enml format, which is html based.

I prefer to store my code snippets in text file attachments.

I recently started to notice this as well.  Each time I save a HTML code snippet in a code block and that HTML snippet contains a <br> tag it will get removed so the code snipped looks odd from what I had intended to paste in it.

After some testing and trying this and trying that I found that I could replace the <br> tag in the Evernote code block with a <br /> and this tag will not be removed in the Evernote code block.  Additionally I can use the <br /> tag in my work and there doesn't seem to be any negative effects, at least so far.  

I am far from being an accomplished HTML coder so a question for all of you seasoned HTML experts out there.  Is there a down side to using an HTML <br /> tag?  I mostly use the <br /> tag for CR/LF in paragraph block and in HTML email....
