Paragraphs

Paragraphs help you structure your content into more readable chunks, as compared to just a "wall of text". Insert other elements for even better readability: structure topics with chapters and procedures, add lists and tables, images and notes.

In semantic markup use the <p> element to create paragraphs. In Markdown, use blank lines to break text into paragraphs.

<p id="unique-id"> Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. </p> <p> Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. </p>
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. {id="unique-id"} Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

Inline elements

Use inline elements to indicate the semantic meaning of some text in paragraphs: <control>, <code>, <path>, <ui-path>, <emphasis>.

<procedure id="example-procedure"> <step> Click <control>OK</control>, call <code>doThis()</code>, open <path>file.txt</path>, select <ui-path>Edit | Copy</ui-path>, and stay <emphasis>focused</emphasis>.</step> </procedure>
  • Click OK, call doThis(), open file.txt, select Edit | Copy, and stay focused.

To format text directly with a specific color and font, use the <format> element:

<format style="bold" color="RosyBrown">Hello, world!</format>

Hello, world!

<format style="subscript" color="Red">Hello, world!</format>

Hello, world!

You can also use other inline elements in paragraphs:
