# Paragraph tag in HTML

HTML Paragraph

HTML paragraph is a tag which is used to specify a paragraph to be displayed on the webpage. The text between the starting <p> tag and the end </p> tag represents a paragraph in HTML. There is however no need to add a line of separation before and after a paragraph since an empty line is added before and after a paragraph by the browser itself. Including Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari and Firefox, all the popular browsers supports the HTML paragraph tag.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Example</title> </head> <body> <p>Hello World!!</p> <p>I am an HTML Paragraph.</p> </body> </html>
