Hi Marilyn.Actually, that's an excellent question. I personally would prefer to have a blank line between paragraphs rather than an indented first line of a paragraph. The speech program that many of us use--called JAWS--can be made to read blank lines if we so wish, but if we make it tell us all the indented lines, it will read any line that may be indented (chapter headings or chapter titles, for example) telling us, not only that the line is indented, but by how much. There's such a thing as too much speech, and indented lines can create too much speech.
This is just my opinion, however. Thanks, Bob----- Original Message ----- From: "Marilyn Beasley" <mbeasley@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Good morning, all. Whip out your crayons and color me "Thrilled"! I have taken everyone's advice, plus a lovely phone call from Rob T. and happily making my way through my first assignment. I have only one question: Per my past (and probably mistaken) training, I am leaving a blank space between paragraphs, instead of making an indent in the first line. I'm only on page 58 so conceivably I could go back and fix this if it's unacceptable. I went to the library and checked out the book so I could more thoroughly proofread, and it is a great help. Once again, color me "Thrilled" and know that I thank you all for everything.
