Well, thank you all for helping me figure out a solution to this, and
sparking up a bit of discussion on this behavior.

I think it should be easier and better documented for the htmlpnewline
attribute or something.

I appreciate this option being available, even if it's *not* the
default, I just think it might be more appreciated if it was easier to
find :P
