HTML p Tag

HTML<p>Tag: The HTML<p> tag specifies a paragraph. Browsers automatically add some space (margin) before and after each <p> element. The margins can be modified with CSS (with the margin properties). Most of the browsers read a line as a paragraph even if we don’t use the closing tag i.e, </p>, but this may raise unexpected results. So, it is both a good convention and we must use the closing tag.


HTML p tag supports both the global and the event attributes. And the paragraph tag is the block-level element.

Syntax:<p> Text </p>
