<P> Paragraph

Definition: Use the <P> element to define a paragraph. This element's exact rendering (i.e. leading, indentation, etc.) is not defined and may be a function of other style sheets or tags.

Standard Attributes: CLASS, CLEAR, ID, LANG

Attributes:

ALIGN

Horizontal headings are normally rendered flush left. You can use the ALIGN attribute to specify an explicit horizontal alignment:

* align=right: Renders the heading flush right

* align=left: Renders the heading flush left

* align=center: Centers the heading

* align=justify: Allows heading lines to be justified where it's practical @md where it's not, it gives the same effect as the default setting.

NOWRAP

You can prevent the browser from automatically wrapping lines by using NOWRAP. If you would like to specify explicit line breaks, you can then do it by using the BR element.
