Getting text to go to the next line.



  • When I am typing out a paragraph in the <p> element, my text wants to just keep going. How do I get it to automatically go to the next line? Obviously a beginner here.



  • If you want your text to go to the next line, you can use the <br> element. that means break, the <br> tag has no end tag that is in the HTML, while in the XHTML the <br> tag must be properly closed. Note that the <br> tag is used to enter line breaks, not to separate paragraphs. For example,

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <body>

    <p>
    To break lines<br>in a text,<br>use the br element.
    </p>

    </body>
    </html>

    here is your output:

    To break lines
    in a text,
    use the br element.

    Please let me know if it is useful. Thank you.
