Intro to HTML exercise


I did the first exercise in the introduction “The Body”. i typed this: "

"Life is very short and what we have to do must be done in the now." - Audre Lorde .

Notice that it does not have the closing paragraph tag

. I executed the code and it produced the text within the opening P tag, why is that?


html5 allows to paragraph closing tag to be omitted.

Furthermore, if you body only contains a single paragraph element, there isn’t much layout in the page which the paragraph element can mess up


Awesome. Thank you, i get it.
