The Left column lists the source code. The right column shows the result displayed on the page.

typed in the source what appears on the page
Single "Enter" (called "Return" on 
Mac keyboards) in 
the 
source 
does not affect 
the appearance 
of the text. 
It does not 
create
a
new
paragraph.
I can freely and arbitrarily type enters (only once!)
to manage my source more easily without the
fear of interrupting the flow of text on the actual
page.

I can freely and arbitrarily type enters (only once!) to manage my source more easily without the fear of interrupting the flow of text on the actual page.

To create a new paragraph of text, 
press the Enter key twice.

This is the second paragraph Notice there
are simply two enters above. No "slight"
spacing like on the right.

To create a new paragraph of text, press the Enter key twice.

This is the second paragraph. Notice the slight paragraph space added above.

If I type the Return key three (or more) times
I will be creating empty paragraphs 
on the page.


There is really no reason for having
more than one blank line (two enters)
anywhere in the source, since paragraphs are
already separated from one another
by a bit of space comfortable for
extended reading.

If I type the Return key three (or more) times, I will be creating empty paragraphs on the page (notice how there is way more space right after this paragraph).
