You can also add line breaks using the

The NBSP is not a visible character, and it will look like a normal Space in the BWX Editor and most of the Text Editors tools, but it can be seen in some Text Editors, such as Visual Studio Code, as long as the NBSP display is activated (this may require an extension to be added to the Text Editor tool)
