I'm not sure what "identifying" means in this case, nor what identifies
one method as British and the other as American. All the American books
I've seen have indented paragraphs with no space between.
At any rate, you can use tabs in text fields to indent the first line.
You only need to set the tabstops of the field first. But even easier,
set the "firstIndent" property of the field. Then you don't need tabs at
all, and in fact, you can even produce outdented paragraphs this way.
