<center>Text to be centered.</center>

Forced Spaces

You cannot use the space bar to create multiple spaces between words. The non-breaking space code shown below serves two functions. Putting the code between two words creates a phrase that cannot be split apart onto two separate lines. Listing the code multiple times creates multiple spaces. See below

Single Code:
&nbsp;
inserts one space where the code is inserted

Example 1: To keep two words from being split onto two separate lines:

Word1 &nbsp; Word2

Example 2: To create multiple spaces, insert the tag multiple times:

Three spaces &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; between these words

Line Break

Single Code:

<br> ends the current line of text and moves down to the next line.

Example 1: To end the line put a <br> tag here<br>

Example 2: Use two <br> tags to create one blank line.<br><br>

Example 3: Use three <br> tags to create two blank lines<br><br><br>

Bulleted List

Triple Codes:

<ul> Marks the beginning of a bulleted list
<li> Marks a paragraph to be bulleted in the list
</ul> Marks the end of an bulleted list

Example:
A list with three bulleted items:

<ul>
<li> Bullet item 1.
<li> Bulleted item 2.
<li> Bulleted item 3.
</ul>

Indented List

Triple Codes:

<dl> Marks the beginning of an indented list
<dd> Marks a paragraph to be indented in the list
</dl> Marks the end of an indented list

Example:
A list with three indented items:

<dl>
<dd> Indented item 1.
<dd> Indented item 2.
<dd> Indented item 3.
</dl>

Numbered List

Triple Codes:

<ol> Marks the beginning of a numbered list
<li> Marks a paragraph to be numbered in the list
</ol> Marks the end of an numbered list

Example:
A list with three numbered items:

<ol>
<li> Numbered item 1.
<li> Numbered item 2.
<li> Numbered item 3.
</ol>
