It can vary by genre, but I think if we limit ourselves to paragraphed 
Bibles, they are generally indented in Europe as well. I just checked 
three Bibles printed in Europe (a New Cambridge Paragraph Bible printed 
in the UK, a facsimile of a UK-printed edition of Brenton's LXX 
translation, and a 1984 Lutherbibel printed in Germany), and all have 
indented paragraphs. The two modern printings don't indent paragraphs 
that begin a new chapter or pericope, but that's fine. We already have a 
style for that, i.e. whatever USFM \m becomes.
