Except it's not generating HTML, but the text for a plain text email. So the
<br> tag is definitely going to show up in the mail message body. That's why I
was hoping there'd be some invisible way of doing this. (First time I've ever
really tried to control the formatting of the output like this: normally, it's
all HTML and I don't care.) I figured that anything between tags would be left
alone by the embperl processing. That is, it'd process the first [$ if $]
statement, find the end of the statement, then spit out everything up to the
next statement as-is. Lather, rinse, repeat.
