Every document is basically composed of some headings and paragraphs. Headings and their importance is already discussed. In HTML p tag is used to display / write paragraph in webpage. This p tag does not accept additional white spaces, means if we use more than one space between two words then browser will convert it to single space automatically. Similar to this p tag also does not accept line breaks. Even we have used multiple line breaks in our HTML document using enter key. Web browser will automatically remove these line breaks. The solution of this situation is to use br tag for line breaks and pre tags for additional white spaces in text.
