I've tried putting spaces as the first few characters in a line, but it never works... the spaces never appear for me.
For example, I'd write something like...
< BR>  Hi there

and it would appear

Hi there

without the spaces at the start.

How do I space in a line?

& n b s p ; (non-breaking space)

If you enter TWO spaces here in the forums, the software will automatically convert them to non-breaking spaces for you. But single spaces, for obvious reasons, it leaves untouched.

Perhaps related.....I have a "shaped" poem I'd like to post. Is it possible? It isn't an elaborate design, not much more than a mushroom outline? Thank you in advance.

         our software
      will automatically
    convert multiple spaces
    into the  correct  HTML
    codes, though it  often
     can run into problems
       when the number of
          spaces is an
            odd num-
            ber that
            can't be
             easily
              fix
               ed
               .

So, Richard, if you can type it, it "should" show up pretty close to what you typed.

Thank you Ron. I realized when getting in bed it was a somewhat foolish question because if the shape is symmetric and centered it should acheive the desired effect. I appreciate your quick response and the opportunity your site affords all viewpoints, all voices. Even those some may find unnerving at times.

Yeah, you should have seen the formatting problems I had with Drug Trip (which isn't really about a drug trip, but I really couldn't come up with another title when I wrote it), especially when Nanners convinced me to paint the flag red.  The format is the shape of a castle, and was a right bugger.  And looking again, I see the main body of the castle if off by quite a bit.

FYI: Each tower/turret is a separate poem or story, each one tieing into the castle body story at the point of intersection.  The first goes with the first word, the second comes in at 'expendible', and the third ties into 'All hail'.
