Exercises to try:
1. Italicize any word not already italicized
2. Add this text in a paragraph: My Aunt Mertle moaned like a zombie whenever she was hungry.
3. Bold "My" from the new paragraph
4. What happens when you delete a closing paragraph tag?

<p>This paragraph tastes like braaains</p>

<p>Don’t forget: Zombies are <em>not</em> cuddly-wuddly</p>

<p>Nor are they good dance partners. Rigor-mortis <i>really</i> affects your flexibility.</p>

<p>"Look out! There’s <strong>a zombie on your head!</strong>"</p>

<p>"Oh. Never mind, man. That was just your haircut… <b>Don’t hurt me!</b>"</p>
