- I tested with the inital "H" and [Lines=4,Hang=.1,Nindent=20pt,Findent=20pt]. This makes the H itself be indented too (see enclosed dump). It seems that Findent adds space both before and after the dropcap, when it only should add after the dropcap.

That was a bug, so, although I promised I wouldn't do this ... here is version four. ;-)

- The text font seems to be defaulted to small capitals. However, this
is merely one of the conventions how text after a dropcap is set. Other
conventions include e.g. roman or italic caps, roman or italic lower
case etc.

You can set the 'TextFont' parameter to something else.

- Regarding the slope one should be able to set indentation separately
for each line. This depends on the fact that some characters call for a
different type of intendation of the lines - e.g. the character "L".

I will keep this in mind for a future extension

- Sometimes there is a need to indent the dropcap slightly itself, e.g.
if one uses a quotation mark before the dropcap. So a parameter to
control that would be great.

You can set the 'Hang' parameter to a negative value.
