Horizontal lines without front space:
- An unnumbered list begins with an asterisk.
- A list member
- Nested list members without tabs.
- You can now nest beyond four deep...
- ...although it becomes hard...
- A numbered list, which starts with a tab and any digit, is automatically numbered.
- It is also called an ordered list.
- The various kinds of lists can be nested by using extra tabs.
- Also this way:
- Nested too
- Yet one more
- And another one
- This is not another one
- But this one is
- Also the other way round:
- Item 1
- Item 2
- 3 metI
- And like this.
- Nested item.
- Even more nested item.
- I've flown the coop!
- definition -- formed with Tab-Stuff-Colon-Tab

If you indent your paragraph, it will be monospaced and won't line-wrap. This is a very common mistake, but trying to rectify it by inserting new lines into the paragraph doesn't work.
Our [many] revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
Monospaced text is also handy for showing tables (since HtmlTables
are not supported). However, be wary of TabMunging
