    I am sure this topic has been covered but after searching if I click on a topic I am returned to where I came from and I cannot access the codex today.

    How do I insert blank lines in a post? For example if I want blank lines after the last line in the post so that the last line is not sitting right at the bottom.

    Can you give us an example? I don't see anything like that (sitting right at the bottom.) in your blog linked by the name.

    Using css is best and giving a margin for the bottom of the area you need. But if css isn't your thing, there is another way - non-breaking spaces.

    &nbsp;<br />
    &nbsp;<br />
    &nbsp;<br />

    Continue that to make as many blank lines as you need.

    Hi Moshu,

    In my last post on my site, I have actually put in white periods after the bottom line with words to create the blank lines. In the second last post, I don't always like the way the last written line sits just above the Posted by line.

    Thanks to both of you and will learn a little more about CSS and in the meantime I will use the non-breaking line.

    Cheers.

    @Pods:

    When I want newline insertion, I find that the following works sufficiently well:

    &nbsp;
    &nbsp;
    &nbsp;
    &nbsp;

    Having said that, another way to achieve a fixed size break is to create a box of height X. It's robust to zooming.
