is this correct <p/> and what is it used for?

I found this tag throughout my application

<p/>

why would it be used?

Usually the <p>stuff</p>

I've never seen a
<p/>
before!

can you help me?

do I need to change it, is it causing the error: which is: EXPECTED '/'

I'm trying to figure out what's causing this...i found the page it's coming from now it's just a matter of figuring it out

what could cause such an errror?

EXPECTED '/'

DEF. the / is MISSING FROM SOMEWHERE CRUCIAL, but WHERE WOULD / be so ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED?

Yeah, that's incorrect form for a paragraph tag. Change it to <p></p> or use <br /><br /> and you'll be fine. It just looks like you're trying to place a little space before rendering your table.

Hello,

Thats weird. <p/> is definitely incorrect. A paragraph should always take this format:

<p>paragraph text</p>

--

You should remove the </p> on line 5
You also need to fix this on line 76

<p/><a href='MainPage1form.asp?usi=23922'>Main</a> > <a href='LocView.asp?usi=23922&loc=1'>Location 1</a> > <b>Antenna 1</b>

Don't use ANY <P> pr <P/> tag outside a table.  It is a conflict -- use EITHER the table structure OR the <P> and closing </P> tags for text -- don't use BOTH at once like the code you have -- it is wrong, or will give problems.
