Question

Could I use a src attribute on a p tag to load in raw text?

Answer

No. Unlike some other global attributes which you will learn about in lesson 2, the src attribute can only be applied to specific tags of which the p tag is not included. In other words, not all attributes are available to every tag. To find out which attributes are available to every tag, take a look at this list of global attributes.

The href attribute is an hypertext reference to a resource situated on the web, such as a web page or a style sheet. Elements that have an href attribute include,

blockquote uses the cite attribute

cite does not have an href attribute.

q uses the cite attribute.
