You can use the `display` property to remove paragraphs and reflow the page. For example, you can implement your page in such a way that the user may remove a paragraph when he or she wants to squeeze the amount of data on the page. Since the paragraph is removed, there is no way to return it but by reloading the page or implementing a link that, upon clicking, reclaims the lost data. The following examples demonstrate the first of these options. Mouse over any of the examples below to remove them. Reload the page from the browser menu to return the page to its initial condition:
