What is / how do I use the p tag in HTML?

1) The "p" tag lets you simply make a paragraph on your website. Its one of the most used HTML tags in web development.

2) Before moving forward, please note that the p tag is always nested in the body tag. Otherwise it wouldnt be visible on the website.

3) Please note the p tag is not self closing. It must be opened and closed. Tags can span multiple lines. However the text that you want to make a paragraph still needs to wrap or "hug" whatever you want in the paragraph.

*On the right is the result. The "p" tag clearly made a paragraph, while the "h1" tag clearly is a heading.
