Hi CrUdE,

XML is for describing data really rather than formatting data ala HTML. Is it possible you have talking about XHTML ?

What exactly are you trying to ecomplish with XML.

are you closing the tag?

ok, firstly <br> isn't to be used in the XML itself - all the XML is, is the hard data, HTML tags like <br> are used in the Stylesheet (or XSL)

basically all you have to do, is type <br/> and that will include a line break.
