		>>CSS is what you want to use here. Something such as the
following:


		div.section1 {
		             margin-left:20px
		             }

		in the head section or in a linked style sheet.


		Then: <div
		      class="section1">

		in the code.

		This will "degrade gracefully" in older browsers, although
it will NOT be
		indented.
