Yes, but that's not what it means! omitting to give a value for the
@break attribute means that the default value is intended, and the
default value is "yes", i.e. the element concerned is to be treated as
if it was a bit of whitespace.
Maybe a better word would be "uncertain" (which will unleash the hounds
of certainty, of course)
