Write: Adding space between top of container and text



Is there is a way to add space between the first line of text in a container and the top border of the container?


One way is to create a very small Carriage Return, as small as 4 pts. our minimum type size, and put it before the first paragraph.
  Another way is to create a small container the size of the needed space, and make it transparant, and place it below the top of the container, and above the text.
