#176 unnecessary <br/> tags


I have a habit to put empty lines in many places and leave certain things on their own line. For instance, the triple quotation in Python ("""). Epydoc (quite recent HEAD) generates unnecessary <br/> tags in these cases. I think it is common enough to add a special case to strip or somehow not generate <br/>.

    I'm closing this bug because the <br/><br/> are not generated by extra whitespaces before and after docstring.

    I'd like to remove as many <br/> as i can. But it seems that Edward dropped on purpose the generation of <p>...</p> around some paragraphs in epytext, and without those missing p's the double <br/> are required to add a pleasant amount of spacing.

    I am for adding the <p> again every paragraph in the epydoc output and fine tune the space using the css. I'll try to do something in this direction.
