    >>> even when the space before/after values are blank ...

    I think that's the problem - if they are blank they default to something. Try setting them to 0.

    Re: Vertical spacing on web page (any, really!)

    I have a nasty feeling that I tried this, but I couldn't insert any value in there. I will try again on my return home! Thanks!

    Vertical spacing on web page (any, really!)

    I think I understand that adding carriage returns in FrontPage does NOT carry over to the HTML web page.

    I also think I understand that I need to use Paragraph => Space before and Space after to give this result on a web page..

    So how does it happen that there is a gap of about a blank line between two text lines (in fact, paragraphs), even when the space before/after values are blank (as is the line spacing)? Clearly something is causing the spacing... The Style is "Normal" for these lines, by the way!

    Are there any other methods of causing blank space before and after a paragraph?

    What ever happened to intuitivity?

    Re: Vertical spacing on web page (any, really!)

    I changed the Before and After spacing, and set Single-space, and it's fine. So why didn't it work last time? Am I in the rong job???

    By default, HTML suppresses white space. When you use

    tags, all browsers I have used default one one blank line between. To insert more than that, you use a STYLE attribute, either directly in your

    tag or by using a CLASS attribute in your

    tag to refer to a defined style independent of the tag type.

    Take a look at the attached for more ideas. Note that the top and bottom margins are not additive, that is, 24+24 = 24, not 48 (last example).
