If I do not want a line between paragraphs that the p tag causes, but I just want to move down to the next line I can use the <br> which moves me down to the next line. Remember that all tags must have opening and closing. For most XHTML and HTML tags there are both opening and closing tags. This is not true of the br or break command.
Essentially the br tag moves me down to the next line without starting a new paragraph.
Remember a new paragraph automatically skips a line.
In XHTML it is written using a shortcut <br /> with the br followed by a space and then a / all within the tag brackets. Check the code.
So, to move down to the next line I can use the <br> or <br /> . Remember that most HTML tags have opening and closing. This is not true of the br or break command.
Please note the use of & followed by either lt or gt and the semi-colon to show the less then and greater than < > symbols when I want the html code to appear in the explanation.
