    To start a new paragraph in latex, simply leave a blank line in the source document. A single carriage return has no effect in latex. For example,
    Code (Text):
    This is paragraph one.
    This is still paragraph one and will in fact appear on the same line as the previous sentence.

    This is paragraph two
