I'm designing a web page using Dreamweaver CS3. I put some text in a box (using a div tag) and I want the text to be double spaced. I can't find any way to do it in Dreamweaver. I tried to go to "code view" to try to just hand-code it so that it will be double spaced, but I don't know how to do it that way either. Is there any way to make the text double-spaced?

Hi John,
             you could simply add style to your paragraph as
<p style="line-height: 2em;">

Use letter spacing. Check this out:

<html>
      <head>
            <title>Script Demo Gops</title>
            <style>
                  p{ letter-spacing: 0.3em }
            </style>
      </head>
<body>
      <p>The letter-spacing property defines an additional amount of space between characters. The value must be in the length format; negative values are permitted. A setting of 0 will prevent justification.</p>
</body>
</html>
