Paragraph Styles (Review)

There are two different ways to style paragraphs:

Traditional Style

           This is an example of "Traditional Style". It’s probably the style that you’re used to. Notice that I have indented the first line of each paragraph by a full .5 inch, but I do not skip a line between paragraphs.
            Once again: When I start a new paragraph, I indent the first line. However, I never skip a line between paragraphs. This style is still very common in books and other printed materials.

Internet Style

On the internet, most people do not indent the first line of their paragraphs. Instead, they start the paragraph all the way at the left margin. You will notice, for example, that in this paragraph, I have not indented the first line.

However, I do skip a line between paragraphs. See how I've done that? I skipped a line when I wanted to start a new paragraph, but I did not indent the first line of my new paragraph.


Which style should I use for this class?

For my class, always use internet style.

To insert a paragraph break (internet style), skip a line between paragraphs by hitting the Enter key twice.
