This attribute controls the indentation of the first line. It can be positive, to indent the line to the right, or negative, to indent the line to the left. No allowance is made for the line overlapping it's neighbours. Usually this is done in combination with the padding-left attribute, to cause the first line to appear unmoved and the rest of the lines to be indented.
