Leave the body text at the devices default size, do not use large margins. If you do use margins, make them very small. Don't simulate blockquotes. Use the real thing if need be.

These things will help you make a good looking eBook. That's the fist thing to get people to enjoy your story. If you don't make it look nice, they won't get past the poor formatting to be able to enjoy the story.
I think I can deal with that. I had no intentions of setting a size beyond default. Margins seem silly when your screen size is very finite.

When you say 'separate XML file- I'm making an HTML file.. will that do, or is there a reason for xml? (and yeesh... that'll be a pain.. my chapters are kinda shortish, and thus, there's a lot of em. Checking.... 65. Yeesh.)
