# Template:Break

Template documentation[view]  [history] [purge]

Adds <br /> (a line break) to where this template is referenced. The first (and only) argument is the number of times the tag is inserted.

Using this template is preferable to using the HTML because, in general, HTML markup should be avoided in articles to the highest extent possible.

Please note these line breaks are not the same as creating a new paragraph (aka, in wikitext, inserting two blank lines). For the differences, please see here.

## Usage

{{break}} adds one line break (aka, the equivalent of <br />)
{{break|5}} adds five line breaks (aka, the equivalent of <br /><br /><br /><br /><br />)
