Manual formatting of MS Word document using tags

by wizman888 4 replies
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.
