What is it?
The BR element explicitly indicates that a line break be placed in a section of content. This overrides the typical HTML behavior which lets the browser decide when to put linebreaks in a document. The same indentation level applied to the previous line will be applied to the new line of content.

This is an SGML Document Access (SDA) attribute. SDA attributes are designed to transform HTML (and other SGML-based documents) to the ICADD DTD - which is used in creating accessible documents for users with visual disabilities (rendering in Braille, large print, speech synthesis, etc.) The attribute value specifies content to be added BEFORE the original element content (in this case the string "&#RE;") when the SDA document is rendered. &#RE; refers to a carriage return in the SDA transform.
Value: "&#RE;"
