Your title doesn't exactly match the body of your question, so I'll try to explain the best way I can.

Basically, to create a valid HTML element, you need a beginning <p> tag and and ending </p> tag. This JavaScript will generate a paragraph element with a valid structure, with a variable value inside.

Thank you!
