      white-space is a CSS property that helps control how whitespace and line breaks within an element’s text are treated.

      The white-space property can take these values:

      • normal: The default value. Multiple whitespaces are collapsed into one. The text wraps to the next line when needed.
      • nowrap: Multiple whitespaces are collapsed into one, but the text doesn’t wrap to the next line. We’ve already discussed how to use the nowrap value to prevent line breaks.
      • pre: Same results as using the <pre> where all the whitespaces will be kept as is and the text only wraps when line breaks are in the content.
      • pre-line: Multiple whitespaces are collapsed into one, the text breaks to the next line when needed or with line breaks in the content.
      • pre-wrap: Similar to pre, but the text also wraps when needed.

      white-space: normal

      white-space: pre

      Here I manually included line breaks and extra spaces. Notice the extra line break at the beginning. That’s because in the markup the text start on the line after the <p> element.

      pre-line

      Here the text breaks when needed, but I also manually broke the last few words. I included the same extra whitespaces, but they are now collapsed.

      pre-wrap

      Now the extra whitespaces aren’t collapsed.
