Organizing with Breaks and Paragraphs
Learn how to separate text using a line break and paragraph tags.

HTML ignores carriage returns in your text.

If you want a break in your text, you have to insert a <BR>
tag. Wherever you put <BR>
the line of text will break and begin a new line.

The <P>

tag inserts a bit of vertical space, typically used between paragraphs.

The <BR>
tag doesn't insert any vertical space.
