Formatting depends on where the story is published.  Indents (using the Tab key) are a no-no for online publication, as they aren't recognized.  Some editors ask for Standard formatting, others ask that indents aren't used.  For online publication they often ask for single line spacing with a line between paragraphs, and no indents. 

I usually post my story on a Wordpress page for sharing with the forum.  The document I submitted to the contest had indents and double line spacing, no space between paragraphs.  That all has to be changed for my Wordpress page.
