Sigil-created code not honored by Sony PRS-350 :(
I have an epub for which I manually inserted line breaks into each chapter using Sigil to get some extra space between chapter headings and body text. I usually do this via margin-top, margin-bottom, or padding instructions in the stylesheet. However in this case, the manual breaks were working out better (or so I thought).
Well the spacing shows up fine in both Calibre's viewer and in Stanza on my iPod Touch. But my Sony PRS-350 just ignores it! I have no clue why. The code sigil inserted looks like this:
<div class="calibre4"> <span class="calibre9"><br class="calibre4"/></span> </div> <div class="calibre4"> <span class="calibre9"><br class="calibre4"/></span> </div>
Anyone have a clue why the Sony reader is ignoring this code so I can avoid it in the future? I doubt I will go change all the chapters for the epub in question but I'd like to know what to avoid going forward.

Try putting a space in front of the /. I think <br /> is correct. Try it without the class part.

Or add something after the break, like
But really, use margins instead.

Margins and paddings are the better way, espacially when they are applied to html-elements.
Sometimes some room is wanted only in special cases, just use

<br /> is useful when NO room (paragraph spacing/controlled split line Headings(Sigil uses headings in the TOC. Split-line means the TOC reads as 1 item, not 2+)) is wanted when starting a new line
