[oXygen-user] CSS hanging indents

Hi oXygenators,

In CSS one is generally able to accomplish a hanging indent like so:

.hanging-indent { display: block; margin-left: 5em; text-indent: -5em }

By "hanging indent" we mean that the block is indented from the left
margin, but its first line is not. This layout is commonly used for
certain kinds of lists, such as bibliographies.

But this doesn't work in oXygen Author because text-indent is not
implemented (as is confirmed by the Help).

Are any workarounds available? (Yes this is a feature request. :-)
