HTML Code

By jardinier ·
I publish several websites which are constructed on a website builder which is provided by the hosting company.

The only thing I have to do is to insert HTML codes for formating.
<B> and </B> etc.
<br>
</P>

My problem is that the full formatting is only visible on Internet Explorer.

Mozilla Firefox and Netscape can recognise line break <br> but not paragraph break </P>

Is there some code for paragraph break that will register on all three browsers?

Hi Julian,

Here is a link to the pages that Mozilla keeps up to aid web developers in creating code that is compatible across different browsers.

http://www.mozilla.org/docs/web-developer/

One option would be to use Mozilla Composer to create and check your web pages.

hmmm, somehow i never saw this question here.

as far as i know, <br>amd <p> tags are considered the most basic html and shoukd be cross browser friendly, netscape has handled that tag since it's earliet days.

many people are trying to eliminate the <P> tag due to the wide use of css and the <DIV> tag, yet others argue that <P> will always be needed.

if you go to this link and type in the URL it will validate your code cross browser for free

In a private email, you hit the nail square on the head.
<BR><BR> does the trick. Many thanks.
