Chapter 9. Paragraphs and Block Formatting

Chapter 9. Paragraphs and Block Formatting

The basic unit of text is the paragraph, although in HTML the paragraph is a specific tag. Paragraphs in HTML are blocks of text enclosed by the <p> tag (Figure 9.1), but paragraphs can also be more loosely defined as any specifically formatted block of text. Paragraph types include headers, list items, preformatted text, and divisions.

Figure 9.1. I formatted an HTML version of this page in Dreamweaver by applying paragraph breaks, two kinds of headings, blockquotes, and a bulleted list. If I had wanted to replicate the layout of this page (including columns), I would have used tables.
