Yeah -- sorry, I thought up those last two testcases (applying "float"
and "position:absolute" to <br>) a bit later, after I sent my initial
email. (which is why I didn't mention them as a rendering difference)
So, the "position" & "float" properties do represent a little bit of
style that Gecko honors on <br> (but not Blink/Presto; not sure about IE).
