The Computer Is Not A Typewriter
Feeling overwhelmed with tags? Don't worry, you don't
need to memorize them - ever! In fact, starting with this
week, the final page of each lesson will list off all the
new tags you learned in a way in which you can copy them
into a web page to start your own directory of HTML tags.
Now let's briefly talk about formatting the paragraphs
themselves. Every paragraph starts with the <P> tag
and ends with </P>, which you learned earlier this
month. What I didn't tell you then was that you can add
things inside the <P> tag to make your paragraphs move
Let's say you don't like having the text on this side.
Using <P ALIGN=RIGHT> will take care
of that for you!
Or maybe in the center with <P
Want to really annoy your visitors? Try
writing a very long paragraph, using the
<P NOWRAP> tag so that the entire thing appears on one
You can also combine them, such as <P
ALIGN=CENTER NOWRAP> to have the text centered but
running off the page on both sides, if it is long enough.
Another way to format paragraphs is to use
the <BLOCKQUOTE> and </BLOCKQUOTE> tags, which
result in this -
Blockquote indents and adds extra lines at
the top and bottom of the text. It is generally used for
long quotes or passages of text.
