View Full Version : Nook Paragraph Spacing

04-14-2011, 09:40 PM
Hi, I've created an ePub file which seems to work on ADE, Calibre, iBooks, etc.

However, when I load it onto Nook for Mac (to test for Nook users) the paragraphs all run together (i.e. have no margin) no matter how much "margin-top" or "margin-bottom" I add to the <p> tag.

Any ideas?

Turns out after much experimentation, Nook for Mac doesn't respect margins applied to <p> tags, only <div>. Seems strange.

It might have some internal style for <p>, with a higher priority.

Try increasing the priority of your styles with one of these:

1. Add "!important" to the margin value.
2. Use a class for your <p>, and use it in the CSS style too.
3. Use a more specific selector, such as "body p".

If it works, I'd go for #3, it's easy, does not need extensive changes, does not break anything. I had a similar problem with <body> margins in the Cybook, and #3 worked (with "html body" as a selector)

#3 ended up working perfectly, that was a really graceful solution. Thanks so much!
