I have a text field that is set to html interpretation. It seems clear that not all html is interpretted.

What I want to do is have a div section that is indented.

Any ideas how I can achieve this?

    You are correct.  Crystal nly interprets a subset of the HTML
    Here is one list

    It says <div> and style are supported but I tried

    <DIV style="padding-left: 50pt;">

    but that didn't work :-(

    I have worked around this by splitting my chunk of text up and position the field to do the indentation but interested if there is any other way.

    It may be that padding isn't supported.
