Use the CSS text-indent property

Thanks D, that's the reason I inquired about it...Text-indent:inherit; it doesn't do anything...

O.K. I need someone to see what I'm not seeing..I changed the css for the text-indent and it looks good when I view. I uploaded the updated css file but, when I view the site live it will not display text indented. I also set text to display to the left which it shows correctly...www.cfgfla.com Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

now I need to know why when justifying text some text has gaps in between..How can I fix? Thanks

There's no fix for justified text. It just isn't appropriate on the web.

In print you can adjust spacing between words individually and with precision to avoid those weird spaces. On the web given that type can appear and lines break differently depending upon the system, browser and other factors justified type just isn't justifiable.
