Tips and tricks

  • If you want some words to always stay together, and never get broken with line breaks, instead of using spaces, write   , for example Hello world This is a non-breaking space, which will show up as a space but behave like a continuous section of text would.

  • To force a line break, on the other hand, you can write <br/>, which will always insert a line break at that position. Alternatively, you can end a line with a double-space!
