Yes, they're fine, tanks are pretty balanced right now.

Yes, palidins that lean toward protection are generally tanks.  They are famous for tanking more than 10 mob at a time.

Yes, Paladin is basically the best straight tank class in WoW, depending on talent build and equipment. However, it is incredibley difficult to play properly, and requires A LOT of attention. There are several add-ons designed specifically to make that job easier, however.

Prot paladins are probably the best they have been since the game released.

Just like Warriors, Paladin tanks rely on the use of a shield and the Mastery attribute to increase their tanking ability.

They are very good tanks that have a number of useful abilities that help them out, such as Argent Defender, Word of Glory (for situations where your healer is in trouble) and Judgements to keep their mana near ful. With the introduction of Holy Power your rotations are based around the ability to utilize Shield of The Righteous for extra damage/threat.

If you want more information and, quite possibly, all the information you'll ever need for any class (for pve at least) go to and read up on the thread in each class forum. There is information about skills/talents/items/enchants/gems/rotations and practicies that will help you out.
