Uh, the only difference between these two:

   <p style="exdent: 10px">
   <p        exdent="10px">

...is the syntax. They are both still presentational markup inside
structural markup, which is the problem you are presumably referring to.

You probably meant:

   p { exdent: 10px; }

...or something equivalent in a stylesheet, separate from the document.
