Help with text alignment
I am new here. I hope you can help.
I just started to learn about HTML and I am doing
ok. I have one problem, I can't figure out how to
align text in paragraph form in a spot over to the
right. I will show you what I mean.
Example HTML email jut the look no tags.
I need to know what tags to use to make
my Paragraphs look like this.
hsahfhshdfhsadhfahsgSee how the second paragraph is over to the
right a little. I need to now how to get the
text all neatly line up line for line like this.
I hope I have explained myself enough.
Any help would be appreciated.

You don't use tags, you use styles. The first paragraph has a width and a left margin of zero while the second paragraph has a considerable left margin and possibly no defined width.
Thanks for the quick response. How do I do that?.
Sorry i'm new to HTML but I pick up pretty quick.
Here's one way to do it:
Read the (x)html and css tutorials
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<p style="margin-right:50%;">JHFFFUYGJHJYUIYSUGYFSUYF FYFUYFUYFUYFUYFYFHHHFJH HFFFJHFLHJFKJHGHFJHFHJFHF GHGJKJGJGUJGKJGJGKJGKJKJKJ</p>
<p style="margin-left:50%;">hfhdfsjfhasjdfhsjdfhdhf hsahfhshdfhsadhfahsg</p>
I am writing a HTML email and through out the email I need certain
paragraphs to be indented about 10 spaces in. How do I do this?
I tried the above code and it didn't work.
<p style="margin-left:10em;">10 spaces in</p>
Thank you! I have one more question. I don't want to have spaces
between the lines, can I just use <br> instead?
Thanks Again Fang,
This message is for Fang or anyone who can answer
I just wanted to know what tag I need
to use so there are no spaces between
the lines. I tried the br tag but it didn't
A response to this would be greatly appreciated
as I am waiting for this one request before I can
continue with my email.
Thanks a head of time,
could you explain this a bit more.
so there are no spaces between the lines
I want my email to format like this example.
I want it to be a universal format for all email
account providers. I was told I should use tables
but I don't know how to do that with this kind of format.
The code you gave me worked for the format but there was
a space between each sentence in my email and I did not want
a space in between sentences.
I hope this helps you understand what I am trying to accomplish.
Thanks for your help again,
This is how I want it to look.
That's how it WILL look as long as there is enough text to be formed into paragraphs.
Would that really be apropriate?

I just want to thank everybody for there help
and ask your opinion. I am creating these html
emails and I heard that not all email account
provider will read my code properly. I was told
if I use tables this will safe for all html emails I send
out. Is this true? what are others using to make sure
the emails are read properly.
To make sure they're read properly, I send my emails as text/plain.
