# How to indent text and make indents

In my answer to this question I wanted to break the lines to improve readability and indent some of the lines. The only way I could find to indent the lines was to use \quad Hitting one return doesn't cause a line break in the displayed text, just in the edit window. When I hit two returns, I get a double space. I also tried putting \ in my $\LaTeX$ but as I wasn't in display mode it didn't work. How do I get single returns and indents?

and copy-paste several &nbsp; at the beginning of next line.
