¶ :: <p>
The simple and effective way to manage blocks of text.
Your Core Text Tag
Any sentence or group of sentences that are not a heading should generally be wrapped in a <p> tag.
Allows you to:
Effectively manage white space with CSS
Semantically separate blocks of text
Design sites for use with WYSIWYG editors
Keep it Clean
Text content should be as clean as possible. Here are some best practices:
Don't use classes or IDs on <p> or <h#> tags. Use semantic classes on the parent element (often a DIV) instead.
Don't nest <p> tags.
Make sure to use matched closing </p> tags (although not absolutely required by all browsers).
Plan on your copy being updated in the future using a WYSIWYG editor.
If you find yourself using multiple <br>s in a row... you should probably be using a <p>.
¶ Because your content deserves the best.
