By default line breaks within a paragraph are controlled by the browser. Lines will be wrapped at the right edge of the display area of the paragraph. If you want to force a line break in middle of a line, you can use the "br" elements. Below is a good tutorial example of using "br" elements:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html>
 <head>
  <title>Line Breaks in a Paragraph</title>
 </head>
 <body>
  <p>I love the way you look at me,<br/>
  Your eyes so bright and blue.<br/>
  I love the way you kiss me,<br/>
  Your lips so soft and smooth.</p>
 </body>
</html>

If you save the above document as line_break.html, and view it with Internet Explorer, you will see that the paragraph is broken in multiple lines as shown below:
