Re: [xep-support] fo:initial-property-set

To do an hanging outdent on the first line, use a negative value for
text-indent, while using a positive value on the start-indent for the
rest of the lines:

    <block start-indent="1cm" text-indent="-1cm">
       Long paragraph here.....

I hope this helps.
