Another Dreamweaver question

text editing

When I type words in my page and hit enter, the next line goes down too

far. I believe it could be double spaced. Is there a way to change this?

DW wraps your text in paragraph tags when you hit enter. In standard HTML, browsers render paragraphs with a double-space between them.

The easiest thing is to simply type your text, and only hit enter when you want to start a new paragraph -- i.e., let the text flow as it wants to within its parent container, don't try to control the flow of the text by hitting enter.

If you actually want to change the amount of space between paragraphs, use css to change the padding and/or margins, for example:

p {

or if you just want a carriage return, hit shift and enter together this will create a line break - equivalent to the XHTML <br /> ( HTML <br> ) tag
