Hi, With the following code I get two linebreaks after the text HEADING. How can I make it to one line break?

<code>
HEADING
<ul>
<li> One
<li> Two
<li> Three
</ul>
</code>

Appreciate your response in this.

There really isn't any such thing as a "line break" in HTML (unless you count the <br> tag, and even that's not really a "line break" per se).

I'll assume you are talking about the margin before the list. Investigate the CSS margin and padding properties to learn how to adjust these values.

What I mean by line break is I see one empty line after HEADING before it prints One, Two and Three in the list. How can I elimiate that empty line?

Again, it's not a line. It's the combination of the margins and padding of the elements. You adjust it with CSS.
