First line indent

Does this forum contain any way of providing first line indentation to paragraphs? I am speaking of something akin to this:

Code:
     This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. 
This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. 
This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. 

     This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text.
This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. 
This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. This is a paragraph of text. 

End
The indent tag merely indents the whole paragraph which is not what I need. And whilst I know some other forums that support the [tab] tag this one does not. So am I missing something?
