Add paragraphs and line breaks

In MOCpages, you can add breaks between lines two different ways:
  1. Type normally, leaving breaks where you would like, or

  2. Use HTML tags to control where you want the breaks. In this case, MOCpages will notice you are doing your own "layout" and will ignore any white space you have added.

Put them all together

To get exactly the effect you want — just combine tags. For example, if you want people to see:

This is my page!


Your HTML should say:

 <b><i><center>This is my page!</center></i></b> 


Experiment and have fun!
