Whitespace

Browsers treat consecutive multiple spaces and new lines as a single white space.

 

If multiple spaces or new lines are added the browser will ignore them and simply treat as a single space.

 

This is known as whitespace collapsing.

 

If more than one space is required between two words a non-breaking space should be used  

 

Similarly, if further new lines are required between content, a <br> element should be used.
