Arguments

...

Text and other objects to be included in the paragraph

title

A title for the paragraph

align

alignment of the paragraph. Options are "left", "center", "right".

italic

Logical. Indicates if the text should be italicized

bold

Logical. Indicates if the text shoudl be bolded

underline

Logical. Indicates if the text should be underlined

sep

Character. Denotes the separation string for the items in ... when they are pasted together

translate

Toggles if inputs in x should be passed through latexTranslate. This should be set to FALSE if writing custom code.

font

HTML font for the paragraph. Defaults to the HTML option (see setHtmlOptions).

family

HTML font family for the paragraph. Defaults to the HTML option (see setHtmlOptions).

size

Text size of the paragraph. Defaults to the HTML option (see setHtmlOptions). May be an integer or a LaTeX size descriptor. See "Details" for options

Details

Options for text size are

tiny smallest
scriptsize
footnotesize
small
normalsize
large
Large
LARGE
huge
Huge BIGGEST

When size is denoted as an integer, as necessary for HTML, it is mapped to a LaTeX size using map.size. Likewise, the LaTeX descriptors can be mapped to integers using map.size.

Additional formatting may be applied using commands such as textbf{} for bold text, emph{} for italics, and ul{} for underlined text (assuming the soul package is available), but doing so is probably easier using lazy.text.format.
