What are Paragraph tags?


A paragraph tag <p> is used to write paragraphs or sections of text in the body of the HTML content.

To define a paragraph in HTML, you can use the paragraph element, "<p>". The paragraph element begins with the HTML "<p>" tag and ends with the HTML "</p>" tag. A sample is shown below:

<p>The format for a paragraph looks like this. </p>

Additionally, the amount of spaces put within a paragraph tag does not change the output. For example:

<p>
The format for a
paragraph      looks like this
</p>

Despite the spacing differences, the two examples above will display exactly the same.You can make a paragraph tag as long as you want, but it has a pre-established way of being presented. Also, please note that screen size will affect the display of the paragraph.
 


Line Breaks

If you want to add text on the next line, you can use a line break. A line break, "<br>", is a tag that lets you set the text to start printing on the next line of text. Think of it as pressing “enter” in something like Microsoft Word. We use it so we can create a new line of text without making another paragraph tag ,"<p>". The "<br>" is considered empty, or in other words, it can exist in HTML by itself. It doesn’t need an ending tag and doesn’t have any other special formatting options.

Below you will find an example for use of the <br> tag:

Creating a Paragraph in Ingeniux Editor

While on an Ingeniux page, look to the “Body Copy” section. Once you have the page checked out, you can begin typing within the editor just as you would a word document. To create a paragraph, select the drop-down menu that is labeled “Format.” This will give you the option to select "Paragraph." Once you have selected the option, begin typing in the editor. You can also select the text you have written, and while it is highlighted, select another option from the format drop-down to change the type of paragraph to which you would like to set the text.
