New Line

Shift Enter



When you hit the Enter key, the FrontPage/Expression Web editor inserts an HTML <p> (paragraph) tag. This appears as a double line space in a Web browser.

To insert a single line space (or line break) via an HTML <br> tag, just hold down the Shift key and hit Enter.

This happens when you use the

Enter key

Here's what happens with
Shift +Enter

You could also use Insert>Break... Normal Line Break, but that takes too long.

By the way, if you want your code to be XHTML compliant, use lower case for the elements and pair every <p> with a closing </p>

Differences with HTML

Single elements can be used with a built in closer such as:
<hr /> or <br />

At least as Google refers to them when they're sitting around in their backrooms
Domain
Dynamic URL



Fragment or a Named anchor




The Googlers I've talked to are split right down the middle on which way to refer it. Disputes on what to call it can be settled with arm wrestling, dance-offs, or drinking contests. Typically the fragment is used to refer to an internal section within a web document. In this case, the named anchor means "skip to 2 minutes and 30 seconds into the video."
