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.

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.

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.
