The title might not make sense because I'm not sure what the correct wording is. But here is the example that explains what I mean.
I am creating a block view to go at the bottom of a node page that links in extra info relevant to the node (a users blog post on their profile page).
I titled the block
Blog Posts but it was small and smashed up against the bottom of the content above it. So I tried calling it
<h4>Blog Posts</h4> and it displayed as an
<h4>. So I got more creative and now the title is
<br><hr><h4>Blog Posts</h4>. It looks nice and works the way you would expect (with the html being rendered properly).
This method kind of seems like a bad hack, but inexperienced as I am with Drupal, I'm not sure why.
Is this bad practice, and why?
