If your elements don't use line height then this setting won't affect you.

Change the setting to 0 and this setting won't affect you in any way shape or manner.

This setting is for folks who don't know what line height is and don't want to know. They just want their converted books to be readable without having any lines overlap. This default setting will prevent many bug tickets and questions on this board about why their ebook lines overlap.

If epub supports this you ought to be able to format your books in this manner. What is the advantage of using % for specifying indents?

I use calibre's indent feature myself. I set it to 1.1em. Doesn't using em give you a proportional indent as the font size scales larger?
