Physical Style Elements

Sometimes you may need to control the flow of text within a document structure such as a paragraph or table. You can use these tags to improve the reability of a section.

Text Flow Tags:

Text flow tags should be inserted between sections of text to be combined or divided.
Text flow tags do not usually have end tags.

<BR> forces a line break
this text is on a new line

<CENTER> </CENTER> centers the text it contains. However, you should use an ALIGN="CENTER" attribute with a document text structure instead. Here are some examples:

<NOBSP> will force a long line to stay together rather than wrap

<HR> will display a rule line between segments of text. You can control the size of the rule line with a WIDTH attribute, if desired:
<HR WIDTH="50%"> specifies that the rule be half the size of the current window
