Clearing formatting?

The problem is that -> and -< do not clear each other. So that having multiple paragraphs beginning with -< will force subsequent paragraphs to have hanging indents, in spite of clear commands to the contrary. See the example. In the example the third paragraph should be indented three places and not with a hanging indent (the coding is --->) but the preceding hanging indent forces a hanging indent in spite of the code. So my question is, how do I clear these indent styles so that each new indent line markup is correctly rendered? R D Jones August 01, 2011, at 01:06 PM

Example:

Peters, Bernard C. "Early Perception of a High Plain in Michigan," Annals of the Association of American Geographers 62, No. 1 (March 1972): 57-60. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah blah blah.
Frederick Haldimand, "The Haldimand Papers," Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society Collections 10 (1886), 248, see note under "to the Fort St. Joseph." Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah blah blah. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah blah blah.
"These Haldimand Papers are embraced in 232 volumes, covering the years 1758-1785, mainly in Canada, though an interval was passed by Haldimand in Florida. These papers, catalogued in the printed Index to MSS. in the Brit. Mus. (London, 1880), p. 679, are marked as having been acquired between 1854 and 1875, and are called Official Correspondence and Papers of Gen. Frederick Haldimand during his various Commands, 1758–1785 (B. M. Add. MSS., nos. 21,661-21,982). They include letters of Earl Howe to Haldimand, 1778-1785 (no. 21,709); Sir William Howe's, 1778-1779, 1781 (nos. 21,734, 21,807, 21,808); Sir Henry Clinton's, 1777.- 1783 (nos. 21,807,21,808); Burgoyne's, 1779-1782 (nos. 21,732, 21,733, 21,734), and Washington's, 1780-3 (in no. 21,835)."
Justin Winsor, Narrative and Critical History of America (Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Co., 1889),v. 8, "Manuscript Sources of United States History," 461. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah blah blah.Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah blah blah.Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah blah blah.

Solution

Using the >><< block markup clears the indent styling as in the example below. R D Jones August 01, 2011, at 05:31 PM
