formatting text in wordpress pages

Hi can any of you html geeks help me out here ?

Simply trying to type/paste text into a WP page.
Every time hit enter the next line goes into a new paragraph.
Ok, so i hit enter in the "text" tab instead of the "visual" tab and that does the trick.
but If i want to "indent" or "centre" a single line, the entire paragraph follows suite.

basically I want to achieve the following attached screenshot.

any kind assistance would be greatly appreciated.

kind regards,

RC.

ps. i wish i was an html geek :slight_smile:
