[Home]Indent paragraphs

HomePage | RecentChanges | Preferences | Newbie Help

To indent the first line of paragraphs, use Cascading Style Sheets. For individual paragraphs, use this:

 <p style="text-indent: 5em;">Blah blah frogs.</p>

You might want to change 5em to another value, like 20px or 6em.

To indent all paragraphs, put this in your head:

 <style type="text/css"><!--
 p { text-indent: 5em; }
 -->
 </style>

If you want to indent the entire block of a paragraph, use {{margin-left}} instead of {{text-indent}}.

For more information about Cascading Style Sheets, go to CSS FAQs or do a search on [Google].
