Indenting websites on Braille displaysI'd be interested to know this as well 
please as I'll be getting an mPower soon, to which one of the goals is to use 
it as a Braille display for my PC running JAWS. Thanks Damon for observing 
this, and thanks all in advance for the help.

  HI there. 

  I note that Mozilla Firefox with JAWS 8 displays the BBC News web page very 
logically if you have a braille display. It's something of a useful revelation 
actually, the way it indents some content to help you understand the page more 

  Though I noted this on the BBC news site, I haven't seen Firefox do it 
anywhere else yet. 

  Question for today: can you alter internet explorer or JAWS so that braille 
indenting occurs? So that, for instance, nested lists and headings actually 
make sense and look nested rather than just saying they are? Spoken nests are, 
in my opinion, too complex to get your head round oftentimes. Indents not words 

  Any light anyone can shed on indenting with braille displays on the web much
