The element <p> is used to define paragraphs in HTML.

  • <p> tag automatically adds space before and after any paragraph.
  • If there are multiple spaces added in content within the <p> tag then browsers ignore multiple spaces and treat them as only single spaces.
  • If there are multiple lines given in any paragraph then also browsers ignore multiple lines and treat them as single lines. See the example below.

Example

Run the code

Output:

This paragraph has multiple spaces.

This paragraph has multiple lines but browser omits them.

Line break in HTML is defined by <br> tag.
