  Not true.  Kent Pitman posted an article some time ago about this.
  You basically write spaces at the beginning of the line with the
  same width as the nearest non-space character above it.  Elegant,
  even brilliant, but really trivial after the fact of invention.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
