Understanding Tags and & codes

Web pages uses tags and & codes to layout text. Tags also start with a < and end with a > If you are want to layout your information is a special way, you will need to understand a few simple tags. If you don't add tags then all your text will appear as one paragraph even if you add line spaces.

Tag Name
Function
<br /> or <br>

Stands for break and will means the next piece of text will be on a new line.

<b>

Stands for bold. It switches on bold text, so all text after this tag appears in a bolder print.

</b>

Switches bold off, so all text after this tag appears as normal text again.

So writing: The <b>cat</b> sat on the <b>mat</b>
would look like: The cat sat on the mat.

<hr /> or <hr>

Stands for horizontal rule and will create a line right across the page.

&nbsp;

This code creates an extra space. These are necessary because only one space is shown between each word regardless of the number of spaces in the text.
For example writing: The       cat sat on the       mat
will look like this: The cat sat on the mat
on the web page unless &nbsp; codes are written in.
