How can I prevent <form> tags from automatically inserting <p> tags.

Description

I believe after installing the latest version of WordPress 5.7
HTML opening <form> tags and HTML closing </form> tags
are inserting paragraphs breaks as shown in the attached screen
capture.

From:

<form

To:

<form

<p>

::before

</p>

How can I remove this extra information??

Thanks,
Bill

If I misspell "<form " to </fform " these extra paragraph tags do not appear.

Hi @rosener!

The support forums are better for individual site help.

In this case, however, the extra paragraph tags seem to go away by removing the <center> (and </center>) tags. Then to align the content of each div, you could add text-align: center;:

<div style="padding:0 10px 15px 0; float:left; text-align: center;">

While it will take me some time to implement this on all my pages, your solution works. Thanks, Bill
