Something really cool

This is the paragraph tag. Think of a paragraph as a block of text.

<BODY>
<P>Something really cool</P>
</BODY>


Something really cool

By itself it doesn't do much. Although with most browsers, starting a new paragraph does have the effect of skipping a line.

So, what else is this <P> tag good for? Well, it's great for aligning stuff.

<BODY>
<P ALIGN="left">Something really cool</P>
<P ALIGN="center">like an icecube</P>
<P ALIGN="right">or a popsicle</P>

<P ALIGN="left">
Something really cool
<BR>like an icecube
<BR>or a popsicle
</P>

<P ALIGN="center">
Something really cool
<BR>like an icecube
<BR>or a popsicle
</P>

<P ALIGN="right">
Something really cool
<BR>like an icecube
<BR>or a popsicle
</P>

Something about the <P> tag... although in the examples above I used a closing tag (</P>), it is not entirely necessary. Nearly all browsers will assume that when a new <P>aragraph has begun, the old one must have ended. So...

<P>Some stuff
<P>More stuff

is the same as...

<P>Some stuff</P>
<P>More stuff</P>

And one more thing before we move on, earlier we were talking about centering things. There's another way to center something that should definitely be in your bag of tricks. It's pretty self-explanatory. You can center one word or your whole page. Everything betwen the <CENTER> tags gets centered.
