I'm trying to have spacing show up between a paragraph and heading in the following excerpt:

In my article series on handling extracurriculars, I coined the term Sovereign Zen philosophies. It builds off of Cal Newport’s Zen Valedictorian philosophy. Before you criticize this article as being a copycat, there are some subtle differences between both philosophies, namely the self-protective critical thinking components, and their applicability beyond schooling career.


Zen Valedictorian: A way of living to become less overloaded and less stressed without becoming less impressive

However, the line break between career and definition isn't showing up properly even with two <br><br>. How would you suggest dealing with this?Blockquote


Presentation layer is best handled by CSS. In this case that would probably be margin-bottom rule for your heading.

Markup with <br /> is usually unreliable. WP mostly relies on <p></p> tags for paragraphs and not line breaks.


I don't use it but I think this: http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/wiki/TextControl might help. Also see: http://www.google.nl/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=linebreaks+get+removed+by+wordpress

Also try:

<p align="none"> </p>

or see: http://www.orphicpixel.com/common-wordpress-annoyance/ (which simply means: install the tinymce editor advanced and change some settings)
