Starting a New Paragraph
(X)HTML does not recognize the returns or other extra white space that you enter in your text editor. To start a new paragraph in your Web page, you use the p tag.
To begin a new paragraph
- Type <p>.
- Type the contents of the new paragraph.
- Type </p> to end the paragraph.
Example 3.12. Enclose each paragraph in opening and closing p tags. If you don't close them (which is perfectly legal in HTML but not XHTML), styles won't be applied properly.
</head> <body> <h1>Antoni Gaudí</h1> <p>Many tourists are drawn to Barcelona to see Antoni Gaudí's incredible architecture. </p> <p>Barcelona celebrates the 150th anniversary of Gaudí's birth in 2002.</p> <h2>La Casa Milà</h2> <p>Gaudí's work was essentially useful. La Casa Milà is an apartment building and real people live there.</p> <h2>La Sagrada Família</h2> <p>The complicatedly named and curiously unfinished Expiatory Temple of the Sacred Family is the most visited building in Barcelona. </p> </body>
Figure 3.13 The amount of space inserted by default with a p tag depends on the size of the text surrounding it.
