I’m in the Ocean Mist theme. I don’t do html stuff. Even when I cut and paste from Word, the indented paragraph pops right back to the left when it gets to WordPress.

You would have to use the HTML editor and code in the indentation on every paragraph. June 8, 2012 at 1:03 am #910657 threepointeightbillionyearsMember Okay, thanks. What’s the code for the beginning and end of the indented paragraph?
