indented-text-mode

>From the description:

indented-text-mode is an alias for `text-mode' in `textmodes/text-mode'.
(indented-text-mode)

Major mode for editing text written for humans to read.
In this mode, paragraphs are delimited only by blank or white lines.
You can thus get the full benefit of adaptive filling
 (see the variable `adaptive-fill-mode').

TAB             indent-relative
ESC             Prefix Command

ESC S           center-paragraph
ESC s           center-line
ESC TAB         ispell-complete-word


Turning on Text mode runs the normal hook `text-mode-hook'.
