Unneeded line break after combobox fields
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I noticed this with the combobox field type, but it may occur with others. I cannot put a simple instruction to the right of the field because a <br /> seems to be hard coded, causing the instructions to go underneath. That is confusing to people who can't tell whether the instructions are for the above or below fields.

Just for an example, the simple instruction I'm trying to put to the right of a combobox is just to explain how to use a combobox for those who have never seen one and don't know that they are, or for users who aren't aware it's a combobox:

"Select from the dropdown list, or type something in."

Renamed to "Unneeded line break after combobox fields" for clarity.
