XHTML Tutorial - Line Break "br" Tag/Element
(Continued from previous topic...)
What Is a "br" Tag/Element?
A "br" element is an inline element that you can use to
specify a line break in the paragraph.
Here are basic rules about "br" elements:
- "br" elements are inline elements.
- "br" elements can not be used at block level.
- "br" elements are empty content elements.
- Most browsers will treat "br" elements as line breaks.
Below is a good tutorial example of using "br" elements:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
<title>Line Breaks in a Paragraph</title>
<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>
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:
