recommend this.

hang­ing – Hang­ing para­graphs

The hang­ing pack­age fa­cil­i­tates the type­set­ting of hang­ing para­graphs.

The pack­age also en­ables type­set­ting with hang­ing punc­tu­a­tion, by mak­ing punc­tu­a­tion char­ac­ters ac­tive. This fa­cil­ity is best sup­pressed (it can in­ter­fere with other pack­ages) — there are pack­age op­tions for sup­press­ing each in­di­vid­ual punc­tu­a­tion char­ac­ter. ‘Real’ at­tempts at hang­ing punc­tion should nowa­days use the mi­crotype pack­age, which takes ad­van­tage of the sup­port of­fered in re­cent ver­sions of pdfTeX.
