Playing with Code

I am NOT a programmer and I don't know a lot of HTML. Yet I am playing around with pieces of code to try to customize the TiddlyWiki I am using for my novel. Today, I've achieved one tweak. I've added a plugin that allows the reader to adjust the font size. I didn't create it, of course. I'm a codes scavenger.

I spent most of the afternoon trying to figure out how to automatically indent the first line of every paragraph. I still can't figure it out.

Hi Barbara,

I also want to use tiddlywiki for the benefit of a novel. I also wish to indent. I don't know what you've found out since March, but I've discovered that this is a known issue in the tiddlywiki format. The code doesn't generate tag markers for paragraphs. This is a known issue and I expect it will be fixed for a future build.

Thanks for the post. I've come to the conclusion that either I need to go with a standard publishing format and use paragraph indents (in which case Tiddlywiki is probably not the right tool), or I decide to use Tiddlywiki and I don't worry about traditional publishing rules.
