    text indent

    I am trying to indent text, but notice that with a div, it puts a new line below, and a span, it does not work at all. here is my code:

    Code:
    <div style="text-indent:15px;">Link1</div><br />
    <div style="text-indent:15px;">Link2</div><br />
    <div style="text-indent:15px;">Link3</div>

    It looks like you're attempting to code a list of links. It should be marked up as an unordered list (ul) and styled accordingly.

    EDIT:
    How do I change the indent amount though?

    Here is one example of an <ul> using indented text... a class using padding:

    view source code to see how class is applied to anchors <a......>.
    Code:
    .pad_menu {
    	padding-left: 20px;
    }
