Block formatting elements are used for the formatting of whole blocks of text within a HTML document, rather than single characters. They should all (if present) be within the body of the document. (I.e. within the
<BODY> ... </BODY> elements)
The essential block formatting elements are :
<ADDRESS>- Format an address section
<BLOCKQUOTE>- To quote text from another source.
<CENTER>- Centering text on the page.
<DIV>- Allow centering, or left/right justification of text.
<FIELDSET>- Framed Container.
<Hx>- Format six levels of heading.
<LAYER>- Distinct layers of content.
<LEGEND>- FieldSet legend.
<LISTING>- Text formatting.
<MARQUEE>- Highlighted scrolling text.
<MULTICOL>- Create multi-column layouts.
<P>- Specify what text constitutes a paragraph and its alignment.
<PLAINTEXT>- For text formatting.
<PRE>- Use text already formatted.
<XMP>- Text formatting.
