    Default Unanswered: HtmlEditor replace <br> with <br/>

    When a newline is created in the HtmlEditor field, it is done by wrapping a <br> inside a div block. Due to a backend component requirement, I need to ensure the <br> is closed (i.e. insert <br/> instead). Unfortunately I can't post-process the field on the server to achieve this.

    Is there any way I can override the HtmlEditor field's behaviour to insert a <br/> instead of a <br>? Is this even something that HtmlEditor does? Perhaps it's default browser behaviour ... if so, how would I go about handling that? Check for the browser type and capture <enter> events, ... then? :-)

    Thanks in advance!

    We actually don't control the line breaks (unless it's IE). The html that is inserted into the textarea actually comes from a body.innerHTML call which comes directly from the browser. You can see this in the syncValue method of the HtmlEditor.

    To do this yourself, you can override the cleanHtml method and return the new html so you can replace <br> with <br />
