Re: Why is the first paragraph not indented in this document

Wait, the example above does engender a non-intended paragraph, take a look at section 1, the paragraph starts with:
Siyasi müesseselerinin kemali bakımından

You see, my minimal example wasn't bad after all.

I adapted your preamble and used the blindtext package to typeset an example document.

  1. \documentclass[a4paper, 12pt]{book}
  2. \usepackage{fancyhdr}
  3. \pagestyle{fancy}
  4. \fancyhead{}
  5. \fancyhead[LE]{\leftmark}
  6. \fancyhead[RO]{\rightmark}
  7. \usepackage{fontspec}
  8. \defaultfontfeatures{Language=Turkish,
  9. Mapping=tex-text}
  10. \setmainfont{Linux Libertine O}
  11. \usepackage{polyglossia}
  12. \setdefaultlanguage{turkish}
  13. \usepackage{xunicode}
  14. \usepackage{xltxtra}
  15. \usepackage{bookmark}
  16. \usepackage{paralist}
  17. \usepackage{epigraph}
  19. \addto\captionsturkish{\renewcommand{\chaptername}{Fasıl}}
  20. \addto\captionsturkish{\renewcommand{\contentsname}{Fihrist}}
  21. \renewcommand{\textflush}{flushepinormal}
  22. \renewcommand{\sourceflush}{flushepinormal}
  23. \setlength{\epigraphwidth}{.8\textwidth}
  24. \raggedbottom
  25. \uccode`\i=`\İ
  27. \renewcommand*{\thesection}{\arabic{section}}
  28. \renewcommand*{\thesubsubsection}{\alph{subsubsection}}
  30. \setcounter{tocdepth}{0}
  31. \usepackage{blindtext}
  33. \begin{document}
  34. \chapter{First chapter}
  36. \epigraph{This is an epigraph}{This is the epigraph's author}
  38. Hariç konjonktürün de tesiriyle Tek Fırka rejimi 1946'da
  39. demokratikleşmeyi kabul ettikten sonra, cumhuriyetin müessisinin
  40. öteden beri demokrasiyi hedeflemiş olduğunu ispatlamaya hususi
  41. bir ehemmiyet verilmiştir. 1926-1945 seneleri arasında hemen
  42. hemen hiç hissedilmemiş olan bu enteresan sav, ilk defa İnönü'nün
  43. 1.11.1945 tarihli TBMM açış münakaşasında dile getirilmişö ve
  44. bilahare Kemalist fikir tarihine malolmuştur
  46. \Blinddocument
  47. \end{document}

What did you expect?

I've just discovered indentation settings vary according to the language. For instance, I was expecting an indentation on first paragraph as in French and Serbian, but instead, Turkish, just like English doesn't want such indentation. So, my question is moot. :? Please, I apologize for the inconvenience I've caused you. Thank you anyway for your help.
