You can use a cascading style sheet and create a tag with a term such as =
<bodyoffset> for indented text. Fool the system by changing the margin in =
the css tag to where you want the para to start.

Also the pre tag has preset tabs around every 8 spaces or so. You can't =
change these but if a table fits....it's useable.

Another suggestion...

I'm not a Frame user (yet), but I do know HTML. Frame must be using
paragraph tags for these lines, rather than line breaks. In Word, you can
get a line break by typing SHIFT-ENTER instead of just ENTER. Then, when =
you
export to preformatted text, you won't get the extra line. I assume Frame
must be able to do something similar...

The caveat here is that the entire block will be treated as a single
paragraph.

Cheers,
John

Any workarounds? ...I tried writing a macro (replacing \t with &nbsp;), =

it
didn't work ....although I may not have done it properly.
