Are P tags inside blockquote tag necessary?
In stage 2 named Text in HTML deepdive series, Nick puts paragraph tags <p> after the blockquote tag. However, I have written text between the blockquote open and close tags and have found that not adding the p tag doesn't make any difference. My question is that is it necessary to add the p tag because of some server side programming problem later on if we don't add the p tag or was this just a formality on the part of Nick.

I can't remember that video but... Semantically the blockquote tag should contain a paragraph tag. Also this would help style the quote in css.
