<p> (paragraph) marks paragraphs in prose.
Attributes Global attributes and those inherited from chunk
<p>Hallgerd was outside.  
<q>There is blood on your axe,</q> she said.  
<q>What have you done?</q>
<p><q>I have now arranged that you can be
married a second time,</q> replied Thjostolf.</p>
<p><q>Then you must mean that Thorvald is
dead,</q> she said.</p>
<p><q>Yes,</q> said Thjostolf.  
   <q>And now you must think up some plan for me.</q>

In some contexts, the paragraph may have a specialized meaning, e.g. in the tag set for dictionaries, <p> is used to enclose any running text, and thus does not imply text set off as is conventionally done in running prose.
