HTML Blank Space and line break

Many times we have to use blank space in our html code to place objects or text in proper location. This is very simple in html. We will use in our menu system to achieve desire location.

Link1|Link2|Link3|link4


Now let us add one blank space   before and after each | to give some blank space.

Link1 | Link2  |  Link3 | link4


To add one more blank space we have to use   before and after the |  to place one more blank space. 

Link1 |  Link2   |   Link3  |  link4

Here is the code of the above line



Link1 |  Link2   |  
Link3  |  link4

See the use of     to get blank space.

By using padding

This line starts after some blank space at left, here is the code.

<span style="padding-left:20px">This line starts after some blank space at left</span>

To get a blank line break we can use <br> tag in html.

By using text-indent



<p style="text-indent: 4em;">
This line will be indented by 4em from left.<br>
This is next line
</p>

By using <pre> tag

The text within the pre html tag will retain all its line breaks and multiple space with indents if any. Read more <pre> tag on how to display text.

By using transparent Image

We can keep gap between by using one transparent gif ( or jpg ) image of one pixel width and one pixel height. By using this we can stretch the line and push the content to right of the image. Here is the code

Word 1<img src=dot.gif height=1 width=20> Word 2

In above code our image is of actually one pixel with and one pixel height image. Now there will be gap of 20 Pixel between two words.

nbsp is non breaking space. Without line break browser should display this.

Be careful when using multiple   - Some browsers will ignore more than one   and will only display one empty space no matter how many   you've defined in your code. To get consistent results (and valid code) use CSS instead and define 'padding' and/or 'margin' for your elements.
