Usage[edit source]

This template produces a "visual paragraph break" by inserting the following empty tag pair:

<div class="paragraphbreak"></div>

Example:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.{{paragraph break}}Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

produces:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

Purpose[edit source]

In some instances, it is not possible to introduce paragraph breaks using newlines alone. For example, within a list item and within references. However, using <p> tags can cause problems for navigation with screen readers, which expect these tags to delimit paragraphs of prose. This template is used mostly in footnotes, where a visual break is desired, without adding an additional paragraph navigation point.

Example 1[edit source]

The following reference uses line breaks for multiple lines.[1] The following reference uses the paragraph break template for paragraph breaks.[2] The following reference uses <br /> tags for paragraph breaks.[3]
