    Bigger spaces between words

    I know this has been asked on here b4,but i cant for the life of me find it! (and yes i have been looking lol)
    I want to know how to make the spaces between words bigger using html,cause i notice that it only lets you put one space between each letter.
    there's a code for it i know,so if anyone could put this up i'd be very greatful!

    Re: Bigger spaces between words

    & nbsp
    use one for each space you want, but take out the space

    & nbsp;


    you forgot the ; at the end just take out the space

    *tests without ;s*

    &nbsp &copy &reg &#153 &pound &yen &euro &#147 &#148 &#151


    hmm for ie, at least, looks like euro is the only one that needs needs it

    €

    seems like most of the numeric ones do not need the ; but most of the umm :err: letter ones need ;. (by most, i mean the majority of a few i have tried lol)

    & #128 makes &#128
    and & #128; makes €

    & euro makes &euro
    while &euro makes €

    http://www.sali.freeservers.com/html/special_char.html some for you to play with

    i like ♥♥♥♥♥ myself

    which do need the ; . . .

    maybe nbsp is just so very recognized that the newer browsers read it either way?





    eek this site looks very scary with netscape 4!

    hmm and with the new netscape, the euro appears any way. perhaps it does with the new ie, also?

    A magical sprinkle of CSS

    You could do this...

    Code:
    <html><head>
    <style><!--
    .word{word-spacing: 30px;}
    .letter{letter-spacing: 30px;}
    -->
    </head><body>
    
    <p> this paragraph has normal spacing</p>
    
    <p class="word">The words is this paragraph are 30 pixels apart</p>
    
    <p class="letter">The letters is this paragraph are 30 pixels apart</p>
    
    </body></html>

    Wow great question with a great answer. I never knew about that one!!! Its called letting (not sure of sp) in advertising. Never knew html had those powerful features.

    NOW all I need is too care that much about my websites to mess with it.
