Default Manual formatting of MS Word document using tags

I hope I am asking this question in the right forum...
I am a total novice at this. I am trying to manually format some paragraphs for a short fiction story. The beginnings of each paragraph need to be manually indented. The dialogue sentences need to be indented as well. What are the best indent tags for paragraphs. I was told <blockquote> is used for quotations, so I would like to know what are the best alternatives to <blockquote>? In addition, would the tags have to be placed at the beginning and end of each paragraph? If so, what is the actual written format (i.e. <i> ....... </i>)?

Word is a poor choice for any web work.

You should use CSS to set the style of the paragraphs.

Code:
p
{
text-indent:50px;
}
CSS Reference

Same for quotations.

You should close all block elements.

While I agree with this statement, it does assume that the OP is trying to create web page(s). Are you?

Based on the OP's use of html tags <blockquote> & <i> I inferred rather than assumed.

Fair enough. But we could both be off base here.
