Hanging Indents

Hi all,

I'm doing a book with lots of extracts and poetry. I am using the <blockquote> command for both. Some of the poetry has quite long lines, so I'd like to have these longer lines further indented. Is there any way to do this by just adding something to the <blockquote> tag for the poetry?

Thanks in advance.

John.

@user_none:

Thanks! I just got in 14 books of poetry in, with "abab," yadda, and this resolves my client's desires PERFECTLY.

TY, TY, TY.

Thank you very much! Once again you came up with a very elegant solution.

I did see something similar on the Web somewhere, I think it might have been on Mobileread, but someone posted that there could be issues where users resized the text on their reader.

On a seperate issue, I've now got two open threads on here which need closing, how is this done?

Cheers,

John.
