HTML Break Tag <br>

The HTML <br> tag creates a line break within a paragraph. This tag is used very commonly during writing content for the website. The break tags are very helpful to write any content with line breaks. For example, writing a Poem or an address. In these type of content, the line break is very significant, so Break Tag helps to produce those line breaks without changing the paragraph.

The <br> tag is an Unpaired tag which means that it has no closing tag. Look at the example below to see how to use it:
