6.8.3 Map Soft Returns to <br/>

It is possible to extract soft returns to the XHTML <br/> tag by ticking this option. Soft returns are used in QuarkXPress as a manual line break (distinct from a paragraph return), and this feature provides a way of retaining this break in the extracted XML. To use this option, you must have the ‘br’ element defined in your DTD, and have included it in the content model at the points you expect to encounter it.
