Can you add blank spaces on a dreamweaver page?

Hello,
I have wondered this for a while now, but is there anyway to add a blank space to a dreamweaver HTML/PHP etc document? Unlike general non-web documents, the space bar only seems to work for one 'space'.

Can this be done anyway? It seems to me that there must be a way.

Thanks

Adam

if you want to add 5 space there, try like:

<tr>
          <td width="405" height="555" valign="top"><p><font size="2" face="Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><strong>
              &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Teaching Experience:<br>
              <br>
              <br>

HTML recognize multiple " " as single " ", to be able to make spaces, you can try add &nbsp; instead, just like:

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Hello 8-)

or else you can try put a 'spacer' image (image that small and use to create spaces) along your table to make it got spaces

sorry.. but where in the code should I insert the &nbsp?

This is a snippet of the code:

<tr>
          <td width="405" height="555" valign="top"><p><font size="2" face="Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><strong>
              Teaching Experience:<br>
              <br>
              <br>


I would like to add spaces infront of 'Teaching Experience'
Cheers

Ctrl + Shift + Space inserts the &nbsp; in design view.

Also, if you want to indent your parragraphs you might be better off using the indention option in the PROPERTIES dialog (at the bottom). The icon is a text parragraph with an arrow.

I personally like using a spacer image. A spacer image is a 1 x 1 pixels transparent gif that you can insert and resize to take as much space as you want without being noticed.

Best regards,

Esopo.
