    What collapsing white space is What are the benefits of collapsing white space?

  • #2

    White Space refers to empty or blank values in the code that the browser reads and displays. The HTML has a special feature that allows it to collapse white spaces. If you put extra/consecutive white spaces or newlines in the code, HTML will treat them as one white space, which is called collapsing white space.

    White spaces are treated as single-space characters in HTML because the browser collapses multiple spaces into a single space. Because the browser condenses numerous spaces into one, you can indent lines of text without worrying about numerous spaces. You can arrange the HTML code in a way that makes it much simpler to read a result.
