Actually, what that does is make a line-break tag or <br /> and that is not the same as stopping one paragraph and beginning another. It’s the typographical equivalent of a run-on sentence.
If you want to control the space between actual paragraphs, then you need to create a new paragraph style with a different setting for the space-after property, using the Paragraph Style portion of the Edit Style dialog. (Just to be confusing, this actually changes the margin-bottom property in CSS.)
When you apply this style to a paragraph or run of paragraphs, the space between them will tighten up to whatever degree you need.
Walt, do you recommend when using Space After or Space Before that you make a separate style with just that attribute in it, or can that be included in whatever paragraph style you’ve made for the paragraph?
I recommend that you do it all in one style, because Freeway won’t let you apply multiple styles to a single paragraph. Actually, you can, but when you do, you end up with another temporary style, rather than getting the styles stacked the way CSS allows.
It’s all in the name of coddling IE < 8, which can’t handle multiple classnames reliably or at all.
