I keep wondering why a line break in Markdown is not just... a line break. When two spaces make a line break, it is impossible to see it in most editors.

@mjjzf We'd have to ask John Gruber, but I think Markdown is like that because HTML is like that, and the original use case for Markdown was to generate HTML without actually having to know or write HTML.
