Heyy

I often need some spaces between text, and i tend to go with this--

<br /><br /><br /><br />

Well, obviously, a strict programmer will prob yell at me for putting that there.

Lol do you guys do that? Or do you guys just put a div with a set height in its place?

And is it really "bad" to put multiple breaks in a row?

Well a paragraph break will supply some spacing and you can always adjust the spacing by creating a CSS style using top or bottom padding and margin.

right, so is it a conventional thing to not repeat multiple tags, or does it affect performance?

I can't see it affecting performance but it is poor form.

The standard is not to use tags for styling :)
