Look up LineIndent.

  "   It clear that in writing code it is useful to have an automatic \
indent on a line return. But there is no reason that world famous \
Wolfram Research Incorporated would apply this rule to pure text.", 
  LineIndent -> 0]]

LineIndent -> Automatic also works.

After some months away from Mathematica, I'm finding 
that when I execute a 
      Print["Long string"]

statement, with a string that's in fact several lines long, 
the output prints (on screen, in the Output cell) with a 
hanging indent such that all lines after the first are 
indented by about two character widths (or is this 
a "hanging outdent on the first line?).

Don't remember this happening before.  What might 
be the cause, or what option do I need to fiddle with, 
and where?
