Is it possible to make a hard break/return in an answer? I've tried the normal keyboard shortcut of SHIFT+ENTER which shows the return correctly in the WYSIWYG textarea but not in the answer preview.
I'm pretty sure shift+enter is a "soft" return (a line break, as opposed to a paragraph break).
Semantics aside, since Stack Exchange uses Markdown formatting just put two spaces at the end of the line and then press return. Or you can just use a
<br> tag in your answer.
