Without the tags you will not be able to style your text or move it around to where you want. This will get clear when you continue the course,, don’t worry ! You will see and use more tags then you have ever imagined before Codeacademy entered your life!

You’re right. Technically speaking you can leave them out and usually not notice the difference. It’s just one of those tags you use because it looks better, and because it’s expected to be there by webbrowsers (even though they seem to deal with the lack of it quite well).

So, in short, just use them if you’re able. It looks better and makes you come across as more of a professional.

I also read that the google-bots reward you for using proper tags like

for the main message and other clean styling , so your website will have a higher ranking. I’m really starting to have great admiration for the people who are developing HTML5 and CSS3 for the world to use.

Most browsers assume there is a implied body tag if it doesn’t find one. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use it.. You cannot assume that in the future browsers will still render incorrect HTML.
