Discussion

If positive, this value is the distance from the leading margin (for example, the left margin in left-to-right text). If 0 or negative, it’s the distance from the trailing margin.

For example, a paragraph style designed to fit exactly in a 2-inch wide container has a head indent of 0.0 and a tail indent of 0.0. One designed to fit with a quarter-inch margin has a head indent of 0.25 and a tail indent of –0.25.
