I understand it to be tricky. I'll play around, and, if I don't like it,
adapt and learn!

Didn't know that one, but, once again, not exactly what I want. Darn 'it,
looks like I'll have to adapt...
Any special reason why single newlines don't get converted to <br/>? I'm
thinking that if it happens right at the end of the manipulations, and
newlines between closing and opening block tags (such as <\p>\n<p>) get
ignored, it will work? Or, actually more simple, only newlines between
certain tags, such as p and div?
