space between paragraphs

I am trying to create a space between paragraphs. It looks good in Sigil but when I open it ADE there are no spaces. Any help please. Thanks,

Do not try adding blank lines, just add something like this to the stylesheet:

p { margin-top: 0.5em; }

I haven't used ADE for a while, but if I remember correctly, the following statement in the css file worked fine. You can adjust it as needed for margin-bottom and text-indent.

Code:
p, div {
	margin-top: 0;
	margin-bottom: 2px;
	margin-right: 0;
	margin-left: 0;
	text-indent: 1.5em;
}

Just to throw another log in

I prefer to split my 'standard (indented, For flush para , I add .3 more to the top) paragraph' margins up, so no matter What a previous or following paragraph does, there is some margin.

Code:
p { margin-top: 0.5em; margin-bottom: .5em }  /* 1em between para  */
I also recommend using em values that scale with zoom except for those special cases (usually images) that want a fixed spacing, no matter what zoom level on the reader
