br semantics

Chris Lilley

Hello public-tt,
Section 7.1.7 br states:

  The br element denotes an explicit line break.

  When presented on a visual medium, the presence of a br element must
  be interpreted as a force line break

Is that a break as in a carriage return (move to start of line), a line
feed (move down one line) or both? In particular, does a sequence of two
or more br elements produce a different visual effect to a single br?
