<BR ...> inserts a single carriage return. Whereas <P ...> indicates the start of a new paragraph, <BR ...> only implies a carriage return within the same paragraph. <BR ...> is usually rendered with a single carriage return.

For example, this code:

there once was a man from Nantucket <BR>
Who kept all his dough in a bucket <BR>
His daughter name Nan <BR>
Ran away with a man <BR>
And as for the bucket, Nantucket

produces this

there once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all his dough in a bucket
His daughter name Nan
Ran away with a man
And as for the bucket, Nantucket

Because <BR ...> does not start a new paragraph, all the current paragraph attributes stay the same:

<P ALIGN=CENTER>
there once was a man from Nantucket <BR>
Who kept all his dough in a bucket <BR>
His daughter name Nan <BR>
Ran away with a man <BR>
And as for the bucket, Nantucket

produces this

there once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all his dough in a bucket
His daughter name Nan
Ran away with a man
And as for the bucket, Nantucket
