The <br> Element

The br tag is used to indicate a semantic break in a paragraph. The browser inserts a line break when it encounters this element. Therefore, it continues rendering the content on the next line. This is an empty tag. This element can appear in any element that can contain text.

A paragraph is used to introduce a new idea in a text. The br element can be used when a new idea needs to be introduced, but a new paragraph is not warranted.


Apart from the Core Attributes, there is only the clear attribute, which is deprecated in favor of CSS.

This attribute can take the values none, left, right and all. This specifies if the content after the br tag should be rendered in a new line that starts vertically below any floated elements.
