Something on the way a browser works.
First an example...

 <BODY> Miser Catulle desinas ineptire 
</BODY> 


Miser Catulle desinas ineptire

 
<BODY> et quod vides perisse perditum - you begin 
to get the picture? </BODY> 


et quod vides perisse perditum - you begin to get the picture?

The browser doesn't recognize formatting. Unless you tell it otherwise, it just displays the characters in a steady stream. If you want to start a new line you have to use a line break.

 <BODY> et <BR>quod <BR>vides 
<BR>perisse <BR>perditum 
- you begin to get the picture?</BODY> 


et
quod
vides
perisse
perditum - you begin to get the picture?

<BR> basically says - start a new line.

Can you use the <BR> tag to skip a line? profecto:

 <BODY> <BR>What's <BR>going <BR> 
<BR>on <BR> <BR>here?? </BODY>

Skip lots of lines? re vera.

<BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>here?? 
</BODY> 



What's
going
