Add a Line Break in HTML: Overview

            This tutorial shows you how to add a line break in HTML. By default, browsers ignore many formatting keystrokes that we take for granted. Examples include the “Enter” and “Tab” keys and multiple uses of the spacebar. To accomplish the same tasks in HTML, you use page formatting tags.

            Web browsers wrap text automatically to the next line when the current line reaches the right side of the browser. When you add a line break in HTML, you avoid this text wrapping and start new text the next line. To add a line break to your HTML code, you use the <br> tag.  The <br> tag does not have an end tag. You can also add additional lines between paragraphs by using the <br> tags.  Each <br> tag you enter creates another blank line.

Start Tag: <br>
End Tag: None
Attributes: None
Example: <p>This is where your fist line of text goes

<br>Your second sentence would begin on the next line.

</p>

Each <br> tag begins a new line.
Result: This is where your first line of text goes.

Your second sentence would begin on the next line.

This is to show new line and return carriage in HTML, then you don't need to do it explicitly. You can do it in CSS by setting the white-space attribute pre-line value.

<span style="white-space: pre-line">@Model.CommentText</span>

You can use CSS white-space property for \n. You can also preserve the tabs as in \t.

For line break \n:

white-space: pre-line;

For line break \n and tabs \t:

white-space: pre-wrap;

As per your question, it can be done by various ways.

For example if you want to insert a new line in a text area, you can use these:

&#10; line feed and &#13; carriage return, used like this:

<textarea>Hello &#10;&#13;Stackoverflow</textarea>

You can also use <pre>---</pre> preformatted text like this:

<pre>
  This is line 1
  This is line 2
  This is line 3
</pre>

Or you can use a <p>----</p> paragraph tag like this:

  
<p>This is line 1</p>
<p>This is line 2</p>
<p>This is line 3</p>

You could use the <pre> tag

<div class="text">
<pre>
  abc
  def
  ghi
</pre>
  abc
  def
  ghi
</div>

Using white-space: pre-line allows you to input the text directly in the HTML with line breaks without having to use \n

If you use the innerText property of the element via JavaScript on a non-pre element e.g. a <div>, the \n values will be replaced with <br> in the DOM by default

  • innerText: replaces \n with <br>
  • innerHTML, textContent: require the use of styling white-space

It depends on how your applying the text, but there are a number of options

const node = document.createElement('div');
node.innerText = '\n Test \n One '

A simple and more natural solution that doesn't involve CSS styles or numeric character references like &#13;&#10; would be to use the &NewLine; character entity reference:

The primary colors are:&NewLine;- Red&NewLine;- Green&NewLine;- Blue

Note: Since this is defined simply as the LF (line feed, or the U+000A Unicode code point) character, it can be debatable whether it suits scenarios where the entire CR + LF (carriage return + line feed) sequence is required. But then, it worked in my Chrome, Edge and WebView2 tests done in Windows 10, so it should be safe to use.
