These look like quotes to me. If that was the intent, fine. If it 
wasn't, the problem would be that the styling conflicts with the actual 
meaning, and <indent> wouldn't solve that, as it still would be 
misinterpreted (at least by me).


That would be a use case for <aside>, <legend> or even better <summary> 
(don't know if that was ever proposed.)
