I do not know what the difference between structure and presentation
means. One creates a language so that documents can be written using xml
markup. if I can not structure my document so that a given piece of
information appears at a given place, what is the purpose of such a
language ?

Since [br] appears to work anyway in quickbook, maybe we can remove the
warning as it is very annoying.
