# [texhax] \par\nobreak vs. \vskip...\nobreak

```Hi all TeXperts.

If, in a plain TeX document, I put `\par\nobreak', I'm quite sure that no page
break will occur at that place.  Instead, if I do i.e. `\smallskip\nobreak',
TeX will break the page just there.  As an example, I'm attaching a file to be
processed with simply `tex file'...  In it there's a `\smallskip\nobreak' that
breaks the page.  Replacing it with \par\nobreak prevents the break...  How can
I tell TeX to apply a certain \vskip - different from \parskip - without
breaking the page there...?

Thanks for any help,

Rodolfo
