    Line Breaks

 

A line break <BR> goes to the next line and does not skip a line like the paragraph <P> tag does. Please notice that there is no closing line break tag. This tag is very useful when creating a bibliography or a list.

 

<HTML>

<HEAD>
<TITLE>
page title </ TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<BLOCKQUOTE>

<P>
You title goes here
</P>
<P>

Your report will look like just one long paragraph unless you show where each paragraph starts and ends. You can do this by typing and opening <P> at the beginning of each paragraph and a closing </P> at the end of each paragraph.
</P>
<P>

Make sure you save after every change you make on your web page. Remember that the best way is to "save as" and make sure you check "all files". 
</P>
<P>1.apples<BR>
      2. oranges<BR>
      3. bananas<BR>
      4. peaches<BR>
      5. grapes</P>


 </BLOCKQUOTE>
</BODY>

</HTML>

 

 

Save this change:  File - Save As
Make sure the Save In: box displays the right folder
Make sure the 
Save as type: box says All Files
You may click on your file name instead of typing it, make sure you click on the one with the blue e in front of it.
Do not add  .html after your file's nam
e, 

Check the changes in Internet Explorer by going to File - Refresh or clicking the F5 key. 

Your text will be further from the edges of the screen screen  and will still be in one large paragraph.
