<cr> (Carriage Return)

This element specifies that a carriage return shall be placed at the current location in the run content. A carriage return is the equivalent of Unicode character 000D, and is used to end the current line of text in WordprocessingML.

The behavior of a carriage return in run content shall be identical to a break character with null @type and @clear attributes, which shall end the current line and find the next available line on which to continue.

This is another simple sentence.

Normally, just as shown above, this sentence would be displayed on a single line as it is not long enough to require line breaking (given the width of the current page). However, if a carriage return were inserted after the word another, as follows:

  <w:t>This is another</w:t>
  <w:t xml:space="preserve"> simple sentence.</w:t>

This would imply that this carriage return character shall force a line break, and break the line after that word:

This is another
 simple sentence.

The carriage return character forced the following text to be restarted on the next available line in the document. ]
