Consistent double-spacing of paragraphs

Can anyone explain how to get consistent double-spacing of paragraphs in all areas of the site (blogs, forums, comments)? The P tag doesn't work and I can't get comments, for example, to double-space at all. Whereas brand-new forum entries DO double-space.

I'm not sure you can.

It is very likely that a different style is being applied to comments than to posts. I need to go through and clean up the stylesheet but just having had the time.

BRs work everywhere, I think. Try a BR or two and see if that does what you want.

The easiest way would be to use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and declare a bottom margin for the "p" tags.

The CSS declaration would be the following: p {margin-bottom: 1.5em; }

You don't have to use "em" necessarily, i.e. could use a specific number of pixels, mm, et al.

While in general Jim is right, there may still be issues relating to specific classes which may be styled differently. The drupal core uses LOTS of custom classes. Which is great. But also can be messy if their are conflicting styles...

I tried the BR tag, but it is not recognized by the site code-generating engine apparently.
