Group P


<p> paragraph

Used to indicate a new paragraph. Automatically inserts a blank line before the new paragraph.


<pre> pre-formatted text

The most useful application of this element is for displaying extracts of programming code as the text is rendered as a fixed-width font and the
<br> tag is not necessary to cause a line-break. It is sometimes used to display text in a tabular or column format, as all spaces typed in the HTML code are displayed by the browser. Combined with the fixed-width font, this facilitates the alignment of text.

I do not recommend the use of <pre> for formatting a few words at a time, as unpredicable results are occasionly produced. Use <code> or <tt> as an alternative.

<title>

The title element should contain a complete one-line summary of the document, ie. "Introduction" is not sufficient, but "HTML Commands Guide: Introduction" would suffice. The title of a loaded document appears at the top of a Netscape window. When coding, the title should be placed within the <head> tags.
A shell document would therefore follow the following format:
