Paragraphs are the essential building blocks of text. Comfortable proportions and surrounding whitespace contribute to their legibility.

Syntax

Paragraphs are completed by an empty line in Markdown.

In addition to the normal paragraph Perplex offers a first paragraph — like the first one on this page. There is also a big and a small one. And in combination with a following subsection, we can use a meta paragraph to indicate a topic or some other general category.

These styles are applied with the attributes {.p-first}, {.p-big}, {.p-small} and {.p-meta}.

Layout

Line height and length are coordinated with the proportions of the font-family Plex. The space between subsequent paragraphs is twice as big as the space between two lines inside a paragraph. On small screens it’s a little less.

Two standard Paragraphs

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life. One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.
