Well don't - use the paragraph tags to mark the beginning and end of
paragraphs. Let the browser decide when it needs a new line.

No it doesn't, it shows a margin between each paragraph. This is A Good
Thing as it is highly readable.

You can alter the margins between paragraphs (or any element) using the CSS
margin property. http://dorward.me.uk/www/css/#tutorials might be of use.

You are correct about <p>,/p> tags. I think I am using wrong tags.. I better
look for other tag that will let me to type line by line without space
between.

Why? <p>...</p> marks up a paragraph, don't use it for anything else.

Do nothing. The browser will automatically wrap the text at the edge
of the window. Use paragraph markup to indicate whole paragraphs.

If you want paragraphs with no space in between them then use CSS to
remove the default margins:
p {margin: 0;}

Don't top-post.

You should use the correct tags (which, for paragraphs, are <p></p>), and
alter the spacing using CSS.
