I've gotten hanging indent working correctly on all browsers 4.0 and up.
Padding is not supported consistently across all browsers, so I used a
combination of margin and text-indent.

I've noticed a few bugs when using images as the first element in the
paragraph (as a hanging bullet), but nothing that wasn't fixable. As always
with Netscape 4, you just have to make sure to close all your tags and have
all text in a container element such as a paragraph.

Let me know if you want an code example, Jonas.

So to put it shortly, with a "hanging indent" property i could get a
different fallback mechanism for non-supporting browsers then
padding+"text-indent" allows.
