Subject: Re: [docbook] Blank Spaces in HTML

I'm converting my XML into HTML Help. But on certain topics, I want extra
space between certain lines. But from what you're saying, it sounds like if
I insert <para>&nbsp</para> into my xml document, that that will do the
trick. Can it be that simple?

You know how in HTML you can use <p>&nbsp</p> to add a space between lines
of text? Is there any way to do this in XML?




In XML, there really isn't a "blank line" because XML by itself is usually
a presentation format. As it's used in DocBook, it's content, not

With that disclaimer out of the way, if you're generating XSL-FO to create
a PDF,
you can insert a line break with the Unicode &#xD;

If you're generating HTML you can insert the very text you cited for a
blank line.

What exactly are you trying to do with the XML that makes you want a blank
line? Knowing that might make it easier to help.
