HTML: Text in HTML

Within a browser or other program that can process HTML, the text is rendered based on the specified tags. Without them, the browser will not understand how to properly display the text.

Let's look at an example of text and try to output it both with tags and without them.

Text:

We believe that a true programmer must understand how a computer works and be able to think like a computer. They should see a problem, not an assignment. They must be able to analyze and reason at the level of the problem and above, not just at a code level.

With today's abundance of study materials, courses, and books, the main question a beginner faces now is not "where to study?" but "what should I study and in what order?". There are many opinions on this subject. Some advise starting with mathematics, while others advise specific languages and technologies.

Hexlet is a ready-made path from absolute beginner to your first job.

If you insert this text into the page without using tags, you'll get this result:

We believe that a true programmer must understand how a computer works and be able to think like a computer. They should see a problem, not an assignment.

This is not the result that was expected - the lines have been stuck together and turned into one unreadable wall of text. For the text to look as intended, it needs to be wrapped in <p> tags:

<p>We believe that a true programmer must understand how a computer works and be able to think like a computer. They should see a problem, not an assignment. They must be able to analyze and reason at the level of the problem and above, not just at a code level.</p>

The example illustrates that text formatted in a word processor and then opened in a browser will be one continuous line, so the information needs to be marked with special tags. In this course, we'll look at tags for creating tables, lists, links, and page sections that make sense. In this lesson, we took a closer look at paragraphs and the importance of markup for proper output on a page.

Instructions

Format this text

My Circle, a career portal, studied the IT education market and determined which online schools teach programming well. In the final ranking, Hexlet came in second place.

"My Circle" surveyed 3,500 IT professionals and compiled a ranking table of online schools for programmers. "My Circle" and "Habr" users who attended online universities took part in the survey. In the final table, Hexlet came in second place.

Each paragraph must be inside a separate tag

The exercise doesn't pass checking. What to do? 😶

If you've reached a deadlock it's time to ask your question in the «Discussions». How ask a question correctly:

  • Be sure to attach the test output, without it it's almost impossible to figure out what went wrong, even if you show your code. It's complicated for developers to execute code in their heads, but having a mistake before their eyes most probably will be helpful.
In my environment the code works, but not here 🤨

Tests are designed so that they test the solution in different ways and against different data. Often the solution works with one kind of input data but doesn't work with others. Check the «Tests» tab to figure this out, you can find hints at the error output.

My code is different from the teacher's one 🤔

It's fine. 🙆 One task in programming can be solved in many different ways. If your code passed all tests, it complies with the task conditions.

In some rare cases, the solution may be adjusted to the tests, but this can be seen immediately.

I've read the lessons but nothing is clear 🙄

It's hard to make educational materials that will suit everyone. We do our best but there is always something to improve. If you see a material that is not clear to you, describe the problem in “Discussions”. It will be great if you'll write unclear points in the question form. Usually, we need a few days for corrections.

By the way, you can participate in courses improvement. There is a link below to the lessons course code which you can edit right in your browser.

If you got stuck and don't know what to do, you can ask a question in our huge and friendly community
