BetterIndentingFeaturesNeeded

-- JohnHenning - 01 May 2013

Are there easy-to-use features for horizontal indenting? The google trails to here seem to indicate that there has been some controversy, and that no syntax has yet been released, as of April 2013.

Argument:
  • If this is correct, then I suggest that horizontal indenting would help readers to understand where they are in a topic hierarchy.
  • Stating it more simply: Readers get lost when they are in the middle of moderately complex pages.
  • Careful use of white space can make relationships more clear, and help readers understand where they are.

Suggestion:
  • Add syntax to automatically indent headings by level, and
  • Add syntax to automatically indent text to match most-recent heading

Details:
  • BetterIndentFeaturesNeededExtraDetail was written based on frustrations with a moderately complex page where I am editor, and where readers demonstrably get lost
  • Includes current tedious workaround, for which feedback would be most kindly appreciated
