< br > and < p > are both very different in HTML Coding. < br > stands for "Line Break". If you were to insert that in your HTML, it would be like typing the Enter or Return key on your keyboard. This comes in handy a lot, and the avid web designer should use it frequently. < p > on the other hand, stands for "Paragraph." It is used to organize your HTML, so that it will be easy to edit it later on. Typing < p > says that you are starting a new paragraph, and typing < /p > says that you are ending one. Hope this helps!
