How to indent a Paragraph
Another area where the HTML language seems to fall somewhat short. Here are 2 common solutions.
1. Use several non-breaking spaces.
Your text starts here
2. Use a plain Definition tag. This is sloppy, but simpler, and still commonly used.
<DD>Your text starts here
To put it simply, Don't.
Proper use of this tag in moderation would be acceptable, however, there are those who have abused the tag
(such as the annoying blinking header above) to the point where the sight of any blinking text is annoying to
many viewers. The last thing any web designer should want to do is start out by giving readers a
negative impression of a page.
