Line Feeds on a Mac

Post by DaveA »

OK, I am working with a new user of a Mac, and I want her to use a line feed and not a end of paragraph (Enter).
On a Windows system, the "Shift Enter" give one the line feed, how is this done on a Mac?
I have been told by this new Mac user that the Shift Enter does not do anything!

Shift+Enter is specific to Microsoft Word, it is not a generic Windows feature. Which application is this person using?

Is it possible to edit the HTML source? A line break is <BR> and a paragraph break <P>.

Yes, but by up loading a revised copy will get replaced by a blank copy when using the online editor for an additional changes.

I would like to fine a off line WYSIWYG editor that has a built in simple web page menuing and can been used on BOTH a Winows and Mac OS. This way I can help her out and up load files and NOT use the online editor.

The SeaMonkey® Project is a free internet application suite including a WYSIWYG HTML editor. It's available for Windows and Mac OS X (and Linux).

KompoZer is another free WYSIWYG HTML editor available for the same platforms.
