Hi Wendell,

I've added your vote to implement the "text-indent" feature. I can give 
you an workaround to obtain a positive indent but not one for "hanging 
indent". Nevertheless, just in case someone is interested in a positive 
indent, here is how you can obtain one:

elem {
     content:oxy_label(text, " ", width, 5em);

This rule will add an empty label before the first line of text thus 
simulating an indent.

Best regards,
