To make sure "Q. E. D." isn't spread over several lines, you should  
use unbreakable spaces namely "Q.~E.~D.", or even better include the  
thing inside a box namely \mbox{Q.~E.~D.}.

In any case, I think it would be better to use, in LaTeX:

   Q.~E.~D. \\
   [similar lines, if necessary, all separated by "\\"]
