Inside the <pre> tags you can use &#9; which is the unicode symbol of tabulation. But outside preformated section browser will show it as a one long space.


Also you can use next characters:

  • &emsp; - wide space
  • &nbsp;&nbsp; - double non-breaking space


Also You can use next CSS properties:

  • margin-left: 2em;
  • text-indent: 20px;
  • white-space: pre;
