To Enter a Paragraph of Text
After you enter the initial HTML tags, you next add a paragraph of text using the <p> tag. When the browser
finds a <p> tag in an HTML file, it starts a new line and inserts a blank line above the new paragraph. The </p> end
tag indicates the end of the paragraph. When you enter this paragraph of text, do not press the enter key at the end
of each line. Because word wrap is turned on, your text will wrap to the next line even without pressing the enter
key. Table 2-4 contains the HTML tags and text used in the paragraph.

Because you turned
on word wrap right af-
ter you started Notepad++, the text that you enter as the paragraph will automatically wrap to the
next line. The text goes to the end of the Notepad++ window and then wraps. If you had not turned
on word wrap, your text would continue scrolling to the right as you type, and text to the left would
scroll off the screen. With word wrap on, all text remains visible in the Notepad++ window.
