Thanks lot for the feedback, will use your version for further editing.

For the line breaks within the paragraph can I use "\\", or does that
break the paragraph?
Probably should make that optional, so template can control either to
keep line breaks or have them removed.
( Will also make <br> in html output optional.)

Looks like we can make an indented paragraph with something like:

paragraph text ..

Double indent would then be "8em" etc. Does that sound about right ?
