The reason of putting a <br> in a <td> is of the same kind as putting '&nbsp;' html entities (non-breakable white space): not having an empty table cell, which may be displayed without borders by some browsers... In fact, <br> act as '&nbsp;' by defining implictly a min-height value equal to the line-height applied to the cell : the only direct advantage is that <br> doesn't define also a min-width implicit value ( '&nbsp;' as a width, while <br> don't have). To avoid the min-height implicit value, with a <br> as content, you could define to these fake-empty cells an explicit line-height of zero, while you could define a zero font-size to get the same behaviour with a fake-empty cell with '&nbsp;' as content ;)
