Is there a way I can control indentation?


Note: It is sort of hard to present a 1x1 image for you to just right-click-save on, so click-here to download spacer.gif.
example

Of course there is!!!

The trick is to make a transparent GIF image that is 1 pixel by 1 pixel, and then lie to the browser about its WIDTH! Don't worry, your browser has no feelings and will not be offended. ;->

<IMG SRC="/images/spacer.gif" HEIGHT="1" WIDTH="20"> Of course there is!!! <P>
<IMG SRC="/images/spacer.gif" HEIGHT="1" WIDTH="40"> The trick is to make a <I>transparent GIF</I> image that is 1 pixel by 1 pixel, and then <I>lie</I> to the browser about its <I>WIDTH</I>! Don't worry, your browser has no feelings and will not be offended. ;->

Special thanks to Dean Maynard at ABC Computing for shrinking my 800 byte spacer down to 42 bytes by converting it to a 2 color palette!
