    What is code to start a new paragraph in html? meaning there will be some space blank and then the text is going to start. How do you call that in English anyways? i would search google if i knew the word.

    White

    there will be some space blank
    That is actually called "white space" or "negative space" and is implemented in CSS using the margin or sometimes the padding property (margin being default in the case of paragraphs).

    You might also use text-indent so as to indent the first line if you do your paragraphs that way.
