I was trying to see why a comment looked like this when writing a comment with <br>:

Any news on my answer? <br> I hope it is helpful

Yep, when typing in the raw data for the comment:

Any news on my answer? <br> I hope it is ***helpful***

That comes the first comment shown. Strangely, using ***helpful*** will have the natural result of : helpful while the <br> will not be working. So instead of this:

Any news on my answer?
I hope it is helpful

It shows:

Any news on my answer? <br> I hope it is helpful

Instead. Why is <br> not working when used in a comment? Is this intentional or a bug?
