How so you indent new text to be inline with existing text? Spacing or tabbing over does not appear to work.

I don't know (other than typing characters such as hyphens or underscores), but have you seen any posts that have indents in the format you'd like to see?

This line was indented with six spaces.

------Six hyphens.

I tried something that completely failed. Since I know nothing about HTML, it could have been my lack of understanding.

*) ___ I took a text file and used a conversion program to create an HTML file.

*) ___ I unchecked the "Disable HTML" box in the message composition window.

*) ___ I pasted in the contents of the HTML file.

Garbage: the raw body of the HTML file was displayed.

Oh well, so much for that experiment.

Marty,

The only ones I know of immediately put the indented text inside a
Code:
   
delimiterpair. That works but you also get a code: heading.

I thought that I have previously seen indented text without the code: comment.

I will keep looking.

Houston, I have indentations.

My specific interest was to align branches in a chain notation where the indentation is an arbitrary amount, so I also looked at the "List=" command but have yet to figure out how to use it.

Thanks Pat for pointing in the right direction Exclamation

List only indents the beginning of the line. It doesn't change the font ... which is your problem.

one way -- use nested [list] --
    abc
      def
        ghi
        jkl

another way -- use [code], with the desired number of spaces ( not TABs ) --
Code:

abc
    def
        ghi
        jkl



( you can press "quote" to see my bbCode )
