a, abbr, acronym, address, applet, b, bdo, big, blockquote, body, button, caption, center, cite, code, dd, del, dfn, div, dt, em, fieldset, font, form, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, i, iframe, ins, kbd, label, legend, li, noframes, noscript, object, p, pres q, s, samp, small, span, strike, strong, sub, sup, td, th, tt, u, var
<br /> Usage:
- standard line break:
This text is on the first line. <br /> And this text is on the second line.
- line breaks beside an aligned image
<img src=about_logo.gif" style="width:137px; height:48px; border: none; float: left;" alt="About.com" /> This text will be to the right of the image.<br /> This will be too.<br clear="left" /> And this text will be below the image.
<br /> Special Notes:
- Match the "clear" attribute to the "float" attribute in the image or other aligned element.
- The most commonly used "clear" attribute is "all", as it guarantees that your content will be below all aligned elements.
- Sometimes authors may want to prevent a line break from occurring between two words. The (non-breaking space) entity acts as a space where browsers should not cause a line break.
