The <br> HTML tag adds a line break to make sure your text starts on the next line. The HTML line break tag does not put a margin or padding in between the lines. If you would like more space in between lines it is recommended to use two sets of <p> tags and CSS instead of multiple line breaks. Do not separate paragraphs with <br> elements. This will lessen the amount of unnecessary code and the CSS will give you greater control of the exact spacing.
