 That means you're switching to the HTML editor and are not in TinyMCE any

 In the HTML editor all line breaks are converted to `<br />` or `<p>` by
 autop, so having line break in the middle of a tag wouldn't work.

 Although this code example is valid, the HTML editor is still an editor
 that works together with autop. Even if you paste the example in the
 QuickPress module on the dashboard where no editor is used at all, it
 would still break autop.

 Possible work-around would be to add the "code" button to TinyMCE that
 would let you edit or paste arbitrary HTML code directly in the editor's
 iframe, although you will still have the browser's limitations there, or
 to turn autop off completely.
