How do I create multiple consecutive empty lines in Stack Exchange post?

I have tried searching for this, and nothing seems to work in my post.

(Any advice on edits to this question are welcome.)

    I'm not really sure what you are getting at: is this in a code block or in the normal text?

If you need n empty lines, then you can use the html-tag <br /> (n+1) times—in the following example <br /> is used 6 times which yields 5 empty lines:

A<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />B

yields:

A





B


In markdown ending a line with a backslash means introducing a line-break:

A\⟨end of line⟩
\⟨end of line⟩
\⟨end of line⟩
\⟨end of line⟩
\⟨end of line⟩
\⟨end of line⟩
B

yields:

A





B

(⟨end of line⟩ is the linefeed-character or carriage-return-character + linefeed-character.)
