Linebrakes get lost while posting in forum with disabled javascript

If you post in bw-forum with disabled javascript all linebrakes get lost. The post is complete but not very well readable.

I just test it on test and it seems that linebreaks finally work. Please confirm.

Tested in at test: works. Kind of (and better than before). But it just looks like working. If you edit the post afterwards you see the html-tags: there are no linebreaks, but paragraphs. Strictly speaking a paragraph is not a linebreak. Worse: after editing and updating the post again every linebreak is put into a paragraph (although empty paragraphs aren't shown - at least not in my browser [iceweasel], don't know about the others.).

Note: In comments for groups (unfortunately not editable after posting) you get proper linebreaks.

Actuallly linebreaks <br /> should be avoided when you enter a text. So everytime you hit the return-key, a new paragraph should begin. That seems to work. But when you edit a post from you again, it would better to display only inline html-tags.

I still don't agree with avoding linebrakes, but as noone besides me seems to care and I can do linebrakes manually, I'll close this one as well. (Yes, WYSIWYG is evil;)
