When someone is reading a letter in a novel, would you suggest having any special formatting for the letter?

Right now I have the whole thing indented an inch (an inch & a half for the beginning of a paragraph), but I wasn't sure if there was a specific way to format such a thing (or if special formatting was frowned upon). Anybody know?

Indentation is good enough. Some people would also italicize the text (or underline in manuscript format).
