Question What does <p></p> mean?

I've seen this a couple of times in posts & can't figure it out? Anybody have a clue?

I've been wondering the same thing! Sometimes it's the only "comment" in a post! Can't figure it out!

Wink <p> explanation

Hello, it is HTML code for beginning a new paragraph in text.
When HTML code is supported, you should not see the actual "

" but instead it should offset the text into a new paragraph. If the webpage does not support HTML code, the signals within the < > are visible and really nonsensical!

Other HTML codes that are used are for "italics", for BOLD...etc. etc...

OH...and when there is a slash "/" in the HTML code, that is telling the computer to discontinue that command, like

. The command cancels the previous

.

And yes, this only works if the HTML settings are turned ON. If they aren't, it doesn't make sense.
Just computer lingo! Hope this helps!
Laura

Thanks, Laura,

It was a comment in the gallery, but there was no actual comment, just those symbols. And I've seen in more than once.

I was wondering this too! Some of my cards have comments w/ just this and I've seen it several times throughout the gallery and was totally clueless as to whether or not it "meant" something.

I'm so glad you asked because I have some of these in my gallery too. Does the poster see

when they leave the msg?

So glad someone asked this as I've been wondering since I got some of these as comments in my gallery. Now I really wonder what the actual comments were and why that is happening?????

Default html needs to be turned on from their control panel

I'm pretty sure their html settings are not on when it shows up in the final text....they just need to 'turn on html' settings and it will format correctly!

I thought maybe it was a visual thing. Kind of looks like two eyes and could be the backslash means one eye is winking???!!!???

This actually happened to me one time when I was posting a comment in a gallery. I had typed a fairly long comment, then when I clicked the submit button, all that was posted was the

thing. Arrrggh! I had to type the whole thing all over again. I have no idea why this happened, as I didn't think I did anything differently the second time. Just a server glitch, I guess.

Well, I'm sure glad it's not just me. I am so computer challenged that I thought it was supposed to mean something & I was just too dumb to figure it out. Maybe one of the computer gurus can help us out here. I'm guessing that most of us don't look to see what our posts look like when we comment on a gallery, so if it's like what Cyndie said, we'd never see it.
