Let's go back to our simple page.

This is the paragraph tag. Think of a paragraph as a block of text.

<body>
<p>Something really cool</p>
</body>

By itself it doesn't "do" much except act as a sort of a container. And with most browsers, starting a new paragraph has the effect of skipping a line.

So, what else is this <p> tag good for? Well, it's great for aligning stuff.

<body>
<p align="left">Something really cool</p>
<p align="center">like an icecube</p>
<p align="right">or a popsicle</p>

<p align="left">

like an icecube<br>
or a popsicle</p>

<p align="center">

like an icecube<br>
or a popsicle</p>

<p align="right">

Another simple way to center stuff on your page is the <center> tag. Everything between the center tags gets centered. Can't get simpler than that ;-)
