As it is faster, and one less tag that can be left unclosed, I only use <br> and have completely abandoned the use of <p>.
Is there any use for which the <p> gives a tangible advantage over <br>?
Any downsides at all to using <BR> exclusively?
The HTML <p> tag inserts a paragraph in the document. Paragraphs are block-level elements that constitute a basic structure of a document and are usually rendered by browsers with top and bottom margins. Paragraphs can't contain block-level elements, including other paragraphs.
Paragraphs are defined with the <p> tag.
Example: <p>This is a paragraph</p>
<p>This is another paragraph</p>
The Break tag puts a a line break into the html text displayed on your page. This action breaks the text and begins a new line.
The <br> tag inserts a single line break.
The <br> tag is an empty tag which means that it has no end tag.
