Well, if you wan't to know, you can just do `C-h v paragraph-start'
and `C-h v paragraph-separate' in paragraph-indent-text-mode and
text-mode respectively and compare the values.

Then you'll know which values give you the desired effect.

`C-x .' (set-fill-prefix) is useful for this kind of situation.  If
you place point at "one" and press `C-x .', I think you'll get
something close to what you want.

Also read the chapter about filling in the Emacs manual -- there are
lots of options and commands related to this.
