EAD Elements: <p> Paragraph


One or more sentences that form a logical prose passage. A paragraph may be a subdivision of a larger composition, or it may exist alone. It is usually typographically distinct: A line space is often left blank before it; the text begins on a new line; and the first letter of the first word is often indented, enlarged, or both. As noted in the Overview of the EAD Structure, the <p> element is an important textual feature, which may be used inside of more than thirty other elements. The content model of a <p> provides access to thirty-three other elements, including reference and linking elements, formatting elements, controlled access elements, and some of the Descriptive Identification <did> subelements.
