You should be able to acomplish what you're after by using block tags like <p></p>, <div>, etc...
The <br> tag should work fine in IE 6 too... Especially considering that you can cause it to render pages just like IE 5x did by using the HTML 4.0 transitional DOCTYPE.
Another option is to use 100% width block elements and then control the top and bottom margins using CSS.
