    I know what a line break is usually, it's just in a table...(with some form elements) it didn't break... i tried using a spacer, but that didnt work either.

    Well it works in my tables, so I dont know what to tell you.

    Maybe if you post your code and say where you're trying to insert a line break, we can help.

    Hi,
    You can do it by inserting a td with non breakable space i.e &nbsp;
    and then provide clospan to other table occordingly

    Can you provide me with an example? I get what you mean by the td and the nonbreaking space but not by the clospan?

    I'm still confused. You didnt say where and how you wanted to use a line break in your table.

    And a good html validator wouldn't mess your code up. Bad code that needs to be fixed might make what you thought looked good look not so good. Did you use w3schools validator?

    I wanted the line break before the registration form occurs. Im pretty sure Iused w3s...

    Code:
    <table align="right" width="460" border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="3">
