The purpose of the section on paragraphs is to explain
the separation between structural idioms and how they
are presented.

For instance, the Oxford Pocket English Dictionary
provides a rationale for punctuation - to mark out
strings of words into manageable groups and help
clarify their meaning (or in some cases to prevent
a wrong meaning being deduced). This is quite distinct
from the font style, the justfication etc.
