introduction:blocks

A block – the fundamental unit of Xilize markup – consists of one or more lines of text. Blocks are separated from each other by blank lines. When they have no signature like the anonymous blocks shown here, Xilize translates them as paragraphs (with the HTML <p> tag).

In many blocks like the paragraph blocks here, "hard returns" (explicit end of a line of text) is translated to <br /> .
