Poem allows indenting the poem lines using the : character at the beginning of the line, and this can be nested too (e.g. :: will result in twice the indentation amount). However, because the indentation is implemented using a style attribute on the <span> element in Poem.php and the style uses margin-left, this only works if the directionality of the poem is left-to-right (LTR).
If the poem is RTL, this would not work, i.e. the poem will not appear indented at all, because the margin is still being applied to the left (rather than right).
