You presumably want to add a linebreak in element content, ie explictly
_not_ in a tag.

Unlike HTML, XML elements have no predefined meaning. If you are using a
predefined document type then it may have a linebreak element (for
example xhtml has a br element) you'd need to check the definition of
the format that you are using.

If your input is using a document format of your own construction you
can use any markup you like, such as 
and then add a template that converts that element to an html br

<xsl:template match="para1">

<xsl:template match="linebreakhere">
