The line break HTML tag: br

The line break HTML tag: br lets you start your text on a new line, but without starting a new paragraph. The line break tag is a self-closing HTML tag.

Because there is no content to display on-screen, the line break tag is a single tag.

In this example, we’ve used both the <p> tag, and the <br> tag, see code below:


<p>To force<br> line breaks<br> in a text,<br> use the br<br> element.</p>

The above HTML code displays the following output:

To force
line breaks
in a text,
use the br

A SELF-CLOSING HTML tag is an opening and closing tag rolled into one.

Only some kinds of tag are used this way.

You can spot a self-closing tag because the forward slash / comes at the end of the tag, rather than at the beginning as it does for a regular closing tag.

Definition and Usage

The <br> tag inserts a single line break.

The <br> tag is useful for writing addresses or poems.

The <br> tag is an empty tag which means that it has no end tag.

About the Author: Bernard Aybout

In the land of bytes and bits, a father of three sits, With a heart for tech and coding kits, in IT he never quits. At Magna's door, he took his stance, in Canada's wide expanse, At Karmax Heavy Stamping - Cosma's dance, he gave his career a chance. With a passion deep for teaching code, to the young minds he showed, The path where digital seeds are sowed, in critical thinking mode. But alas, not all was bright and fair, at Magna's lair, oh despair, Harassment, intimidation, a chilling air, made the workplace hard to bear. Management's maze and morale's dip, made our hero's spirit flip, In a demoralizing grip, his well-being began to slip. So he bid adieu to Magna's scene, from the division not so serene, Yet in tech, his interest keen, continues to inspire and convene.
