The Editor adds a <br> tag in empty paragraphs when typing for the first time or when updating the content from the ViewHTML dialog

Try running an editor with content like this:


<p>Para 1</p><p><br></p><p>Para 2</p><p><br></p><p>Para 3</p>


Now, open the ViewHtml button from the full toolset and Update the content without modifying anything.

The result is that there are more <br> tags in the the empty paragraphs than what we started with, and they are added every time you repeat this process.

Some more details, this also happens when you write for the first time in the editor. Reproducible and video of the behavior are added as a reference below.

EDIT: A workaround is to replace empty paragraphs with a paragraph that has a non-breaking space when loading the content. For example, in this sample app that would look like this:

// in the component with the editor

void LoadContent() => Content = EditorStorage.Content.Replace("<p></p>", "<p>&nbsp;</p>").Replace("<p><br></p>", "<p>&nbsp;</p>");

in the service - so we have some mockup content (not needed for your test case):

public string Content { get; set; } = "<p>Para 1</p><p></p>";
