* [Bug] HTML Exporter Does Not Convert \\ To <br />

The old exporter would convert \\ at the end of a line to <br /> to
force a line break. The manual still says that \\ will force a line
break, but the new HTML exporter, while indeed breaking the line
there, does not insert the <br /> to make it render as a new line.

This is using the latest version from Git.

I think this is a bug, not a limitation of the new exporter.

Best regards,
Terry

Hi Terry,

I just tried with emacs -Q (I'm on 24.3.1) and git Org mode, and the \\
is exported as "<br/>". Can you check with emacs -Q? If you look in
ox-html.el, you'll see that the function `org-html-line-break' should
produce a "<br/>\n".

Could something else be going wrong?

Thanks for the verification. Indeed, it does work with emacs -Q, and
even with a simple restart of Emacs. Sorry for the noise. -- T.
