Paragraphs are the essential building blocks of text. A comfortable line length and surrounding whitespace contribute to their legibility.


A paragraph is a sequence of Unicode characters with arbitrary length. An empty line marks the end of a paragraph as it does for all other Markdown blocks.

The theme offers to style a first paragraph — like the first one on this page — and a big and a small one. These styles are applied with the attributes {.p-first}, {.p-big}, and {.p-small}.


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.
