You can do indents like that easily with CSS1.

  <STYLE>
  .I {  margin-left: 5em;
        text-indent: -5em }
  </STYLE>
  .
  .
  <P CLASS=I>The first line has no indent<BR>
  but the following lines<BR>
  are indented 5em</P>

I like tabs and indents to a measured position rather than to a
particular character in a preceding line. It's also less strain on UA
developers.
