This was part of 5.x classic, and should be part of the new 5.x.

Do we really need this? I'm guessing it is going to be very difficult. It will
require basic layout changes that will cause lots of headaches, since the
end-of-line character will have to become visible via generated content or
something, and we are having enough problems getting that to work with
named anchors.
Akkana and Mike: Do you agree?

Please, please include it.   I presume generated content will also be needed for
bug #22262.    The road to a great product is never easy.   This is something
all word processors/ HTML editors should have - most already do.

A CSS rule such as:

p:after,
address:after,
blockquote:after,
br:after,
h1:after,h2:after,h3:after,h4:after,h5:after,h6:after,
listing:after,
plaintext:after, xmp:after, pre:after,
li:after
{content: "\B6 ";}

added to EditorOverride.css, adds paragraph marks to the editor text - to an
extent.   I don't think it is possible to define a CSS rule which works for all
cases.   For example, how would you specify it for the paragraph marks embedded
in <PRE> </PRE> blocks?   CCing some CSS gurus to confirm this.
I can't think of any way to add paragraph marks to within a PRE other than hacking Layout.

Thanks for the CSS, but it doesn't work for <br>, which, unfortunately, we
still need to use for paragraph delimiting.

I'm still not convinced we need this. I don't see this supported in MS Word 97.

It *is* supported in Word 97 - it has a prominant place on the standard toolbar 
(it is the paragraph symbol toolbar button).

Don't worry! I have the css/js fix in my tree. We still have the problem of
not showing up for <br>
The problem with <br> is bug 2590. Adding dependencies.
Depends on: 2590

Great! I'll checkin the code to load/unload an overlay style sheet just to 
turn on the paragraph marks sometime in the next couple of days.

Checked in 3/30.
Note that the paragraph mark won't show up after our current "normal" paragraphs
because they are <br>s (see bug 2590)

2590 was marked as dup of 38370, so changing dependency.
Depends on: 38370

We decided to remove the Paragraph marks feature, so this bug is irrelavant now.
We show paragraphs in the "Show All Tags" edit mode instead of showing the 
typical "paragraph character" at the end of a paragraph.
