    Hi All,

    How do I indent a paragraph?

    I tried "   " in the HTML but when saved wordpress deletes it!
    I need it about 30 times and about as mush as four   to make the right size indent.

    Cheers,

    John

    You don't indent a paragraph by adding a bunch of whitespace. This isn't just WordPress. HTML rendering engines-- think web browsers-- will accept a single whitespace but will ignore all spaces following that single whitespace. You indent the paragraph by writing a rule in your stylesheet telling the browser to indent your paragraph-- like so.
