I'll try that.

Yes. In this case, it's a menu in a table cell, so the text won't be
_too_ long, but it may be jus tlong enough to wrap, and when it does
wrap, I need it to indent.

> what if an A is mid-sentence?  do you really want it to be padded

See above - that doesn't apply here.

> if it's actually the text block **that the A contains** that 
> you want padded, then i think you really want to apply the padding to 
> the P

I'll try! Thanks!
