How to Indent a Paragraph in CSS

CSS Indent Paragraph

In this article, we will learn how to space a paragraph in CSS. If you want to add some indentation (space) to the beginning of the paragraph, we should use the CSS “text-indent” property.

A space will not be added at the beginning of the paragraph because the browser will remove all extra spaces.
