I need to see it in context to understand what you mean.  You can add more <br> tags

No what i mean to say is when i apply the <br> tag the link looks like thsi
hello



world

but the expected output i need is
hello
world


there may be the issue of div in which it is wrapped or other way round,since there are a lots of css are used and screen design is quite complex,i need to know is there any workaround other than applying the
<a href ="hello_world">hello<br>world</a> to achieve the output

If you're getting that gap, then it's probably down to your line-height (either explicitly set or inherited). If that's the case, then no matter how you break the line, you'll get the gap.

The only way to not get the gap is to override the line-height:

<a href ="hello_world" style="line-height:1em;">hello<br/>world</a> 

Open in new window

(You may need to set the line-height for the parent element, or change the display type of your A tag)

All we are going to get here is speculation until you post a link so we can see context.  An answer might  come from a lucky guess, and guessing is about all you are going to get with the information you have provided.

@ChrisStanyon

if i put this code in a plain html the output is
<a href ="hello_world" style="line-height:1em;">hello<br/>world</a>

hello </br> world

Then you're doing something wrong.

This is HTML 101 - it really doesn't get any easier :)

Have a look at this:

Is this exactly what you get
hello </br> world

If it is then you are not telling us the whole story.
