This issue matters because it makes it more likely that the other members will read your messages.

Many of our members indent each paragraph as you see below. I forced a few spaces to appear before each paragraph:
Code:
   This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see. This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see. This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see. This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see.
    This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see. This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see. This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see.
    This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see. This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see. This paragraph begins with a few spaces, as you see.

Okay, I'm sorry that the color changed to blue. It is ugly and difficult to read.

The problem is that on the web and perhaps in email, too, those initial spaces do not appear in the final performance. It looks like this with no space between paragraphs or at the beginning of each paragraph:

The solution is to add a line space (made by typing the "return" key or "enter" key) after each paragraph.

It will appear like this with a space between paragraphs:
Quote:
This paragraph begins without spaces but with a line between paragraphs, as you can see. This paragraph begins without spaces but with a line between paragraphs, as you can see. This paragraph begins without spaces but with a line between paragraphs, as you can see.

The third makes it a lot easier to read, doesn't it?

Let me know if you have questions.

Esto importa porque hace más probable que los otros socios lean tus mensajes.

Hay muchos socios quienes sangran cada párrafo como ves abajo. Aquí lo he forzado aparecer con unos espacios antes de cada parrafo:
Code:
   Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves.  Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves.
   Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves.
   Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves.

Pues, lo siento que el color cambia hasta azul. Es feo y difícil leer.

El problema es que en el web y quizás en correo electrónico también esos espacios iniciales no aparecen en el rendimiento final. Parece así con ningún espacio entre párrafos o al principio de cada párrafo:
Quote:
Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios que no aparecen, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios que no aparecen, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios que no aparecen, como ves.
Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios que no aparecen, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios que no aparecen, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves.
Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios que no aparecen, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios que no aparecen, como ves. Este párrafo empiece con unos espacios, como ves.

La solución es añadir con un avance de línea ["line space" en inglés], hecho por escribir con la tecla de "return" [tecla de retorno] o "enter" [la tecla de "intro" o "introducir"] después de cada párrafo.

Parece así (con un espacio entre párrafos):
Quote:
Este párrafo empiece sin espacios pero con una línea entre párrafos, como ves. Este párrafo empiece sin espacios pero con una línea entre párrafos, como ves. Este párrafo empiece sin espacios pero con una línea entre párrafos, como ves.

Este párrafo empiece sin espacios pero con una línea entre párrafos, como ves. Este párrafo empiece sin espacios pero con una línea entre párrafos, como ves.

Este párrafo empiece sin espacios pero con una línea entre párrafos, como ves. Este párrafo empiece sin espacios pero con una línea entre párrafos, como ves.

El tercero ayuda mucho en leer, ¿no?

Dime si tienes preguntas.
