Again, there is no reliable way to do this. Netscape will indent text inside a <BLOCKQUOTE>, but other browsers don’t have to do this. These could show the text in italics, or perhaps with quotation marks around the text. This could come out very strange.
An alternative is to use <DL> without <DT> and <DD>, which is invalid HTML, but several browsers work around this error by indenting the text inside it. This is not guaranteed to work.
If you are willing to use tables for layout purposes, there is another option. Create a one-cell table, as follows:
<!– The text goes here –>
A drawback to this solution is that very long blocks inside a table may take a while to download and may not appear until the entire table has been downloaded. Another drawback is that it may force users to resize their viewing window after they have become accustomed to their preferred settings.
