HTML PARAGRAPH

Post by Admin on Sun Aug 30, 2015 8:33 pm



HTML documents are divided into paragraphs.


HTML Paragraphs





Code:
The HTML <p> element defines a paragraph





EXAMPLE


Code:
<p>This is a paragraph</p>
<p>This is another paragraph</p>







HTML Display

You cannot be sure how HTML will be displayed.
Large or small screens, and resized windows will create different results.
With HTML, you cannot change the output by adding extra spaces or extra lines in your HTML code.
The browser will remove extra spaces and extra lines when the page is displayed.
Any number of spaces, and any number of new lines, count as only one space.








Example



Code:
<p>
This paragraph
contains a lot of lines
in the source code,
but the browser 
ignores it.
</p>



Code:
<p>
This paragraph
contains         a lot of spaces
in the source         code,
but the        browser 
ignores it.
</p>





Don't Forget the End Tag

Most browsers will display HTML correctly even if you forget the end tag:


Code:
Example<p>This is a paragraph
<p>This is another paragraph





The example above will work in most browsers, but don't rely on it.
Forgetting the end tag can produce unexpected results or errors. 




HTML Line Breaks

The HTML 
 element defines a line break.

Use
if you want a line break (a new line) without starting a new paragraph:



Code:

<p>This is<br>a para<br>graph with line breaks</p>
The <br> element is an empty HTML element. It has no end tag.






The Poem Problem



Example



Code:
<p>This poem will display as one line:</p>
<p>
  My Bonnie lies over the ocean.

  My Bonnie lies over the sea.

  My Bonnie lies over the ocean.

  Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.

</p>







The HTML
 Element



The HTML 
 element defines a block of pre-formatted text, with structured spaces and lines.
To display anything, with right spacing and line-breaks, you must wrap the text in a 
 element:


Example



Code:
<p>This will display as a poem:</p>
<pre>
  
  My Bonnie lies over the ocean.

  My Bonnie lies over the sea.

  My Bonnie lies over the ocean.

  Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.

</pre>
