Subject: References, Cross-references...

I'm customizing a document with cross-references. The repetitive ergonomic routine I'm using is to click three times to highlight the whole line of a list, hit the right mouse button to make the formatting options appear, choose Cross-references, then associate the text line with the item from the list and hit Replace. The result is that my line of text is now linked and live, but the process ate the line break, and the next line of text has joined the line I'm working on. So I have to hit Enter to split the lines and then repeat the process. I can avoid the Enter step by highlighting, holding down the Shift key and backing up once with the arrow key, which de-selects the line break. But this is just substituting one step for another, and I'd like to decrease the number of steps here. So I decided to try entering <br> in my format within the cross-reference edit menu in hopes that it would read that command and make sure it included a line break. Didn't work. I've also looked at the reference pages for clues, but no dice. I have only a passing familiarity with HTML (obviously) and don't know how to manipulate this situation so it will work for me. Undoubtedly I'm barking up the wrong menu. Any ideas or cures will be appreciated.
