We have had so many conversations here about using (or not using) tables for layout
, that I had forgotten about another layout "tool" that many people like to use - the BR tag
. While I wouldn't go as far as Janko who says that the br element sucks
, but it is not a good choice for spacing out content. It's better to use padding
on your elements to get the spacing you need. It's more precise (every browser can display the br differently) and if you use flexible measures (like em or %) your spacing will flex with your page size.
