HTML Paragraph Summary

The paragraph tag is wrapped around text to indicate that it’s basic text that you would find in a blog post or web page.

<p>This is a paragraph. You should read it.</p>

<p>This is another Paragraph. We hope you like it.</p>


Paragraph text is mostly used to provide style for text on a page, making it a certain size and adding white space around it.

Without this styling, text will be formatted by the browser and might not be very legible. It’s best to avoid letting the browser style anything.


Without a paragraph tag, text blocks on a page aren’t easy to target for styling with CSS.
