When you're adding text in a Web page, the Web browser will display the text as a long line until it reaches the edge of the browser window or container element. Then the text will wrap to the next line. When you hit the [ENTER] key in Dreamweaver, the current paragraph is cloased and a new paragraph starts.
But sometimes you don't want a new paragraph to begin. That's when you would add the <br /> tag in HTML. But you can add a line break in Dreamweaver without resorting to code view.
It's easy to add a line break in Dreamweaver design view:
- Place your cursor where you want the new line to start.
- Hold down the shift key and press [ENTER].
