Paragraphs and Line Breaks
The <p> tag is used to write a paragraph, or any block of text for that matter. Line Breaks are created within a paragraph with the <br> tag. Line Breaks will go to a new line in a paragraph and is useful for cases such as poetry and addresses. Line Breaks do not have a closing tag. Do NOT use Line Breaks to start new paragraphs or to add spacing to the beginning or end of a paragraph. If you need to set a style for a specific phrase or word in a paragraph, you can add the <span> tags around it and add the CSS to it.
Basic Paragraph Syntax:
<p>This is a paragraph</p>
This is a paragraph
Line Break Syntax Example:
<p> 123 Hickory Way<br> Chicago, IL<br> 60106 </p>
