HTML p, span, div and other tags explained.

Having an understanding of the difference between <p>, <div>, <span> and other HTML tags makes working with our HTML & CSS visuals for Power BI much easier.

But, nevertheless, having a general understanding of the most important HTML tags helps to work with the visuals. In this article, we want to show you some of the tags that are often used. In the video, we show you the difference between the header tags, the paragraph tag and some other HTML containers and also mention why we actually don’t use them in most cases. We prefer to use the div and span tags which offer us the full flexibility as they contain little to no predefined format so we are the ones in control over how they are formatted.
