    The problem is that InDesign doesn't use the standard Unicode character for a forced line break within a paragraph (known as a Shift+Enter which is different from Enter which ends the paragraph).

    Adobe, please correct this shortcoming. It's causing errors in accessibility checkers and some assistive technologies.

    Accessibility is required for government documents worldwide.
