Chapter 22. Layout: The Old Way > Specifying the Space Between Paragraphs

Specifying the Space Between Paragraphs

Before CSS, when you used the p or br tags, the amount of space between paragraphs was only controlled by the size of the surrounding text. Larger text had larger spaces. Smaller text had smaller spaces. Netscape’s spacer tag let you specify exactly how much space should appear between one line and another.

To specify the space between paragraphs

1.
Place the cursor between the two lines to be separated.

2.
Type <spacer.

3.
Type type=“vertical”.

4.
Type size=“n”, where n is the amount of space, in pixels, that should appear between the two lines.

5.
Type the final >.
