Not sure if this is a duplicate.

I can have the following in a block quote:

Case 1

00:23

00:54

Case 2

00:21

00:51

But this makes it look clumsy. I want the following actually:

Case 1

00:23

00:54

--1 additional empty line here

Case 2

00:21

00:51

so that each cases are separate and can be easily identified. If its not possible, is there a similar alternative pattern I can use here?

  • Alternatives: You could highlight the case headings, such as by making them bold, or separate them with a horizontal line. – Rob Kennedy Jun 29 '13 at 13:15
  • @RobKennedy I get it about bold thing, but I dont understand that horizontal thing. Could you make it an answer? – nawfal Jun 29 '13 at 13:21

Like this:

> Case 1
> 
> 00:23
> 
> 00:54
> 
>  
> 
> Case 2
> 
> 00:21
> 
> 00:51

Which produces:

Case 1

00:23

00:54

 

Case 2

00:21

00:51

Alternatively, placing two spaces at the end of a line with no empty line after it creates a line break rather than a new paragraph, which would probably look better:

> Case 1  
> 00:23  
> 00:54  
> 
> Case 2  
> 00:21  
> 00:51  

Case 1
00:23
00:54

Case 2
00:21
00:51

There are a couple of alternatives to an empty line that would still serve to visually distinguish your two sections of text. First, you could highlight the case headings:

> **Case 1**
> 
> 00:23
> 
> 00:54
> 
> **Case 2**
> 
> 00:21
> 
> 00:51

Case 1

00:23

00:54

Case 2

00:21

00:51

Second, you could use a horizontal line:

> Case 1
> 
> 00:23
> 
> 00:54
> 
> ----
> 
> Case 2
> 
> 00:21
> 
> 00:51

Case 1

00:23

00:54


Case 2

00:21

00:51
