You might want to try convincing all the ebook publishers that consistent settings make for a more enjoyable experience. Since I'm one of the people who regularly use Sigil to modify the epubs I purchase (which is one reason why I don't purchase kepubs if I can avoid them), I've found margins, font size and font selections vary all over the place even between books from the same publisher or in the same series. One ebook I purchased had margins close to 2 cm. on all 4 sides of the screen, a default font size that was in the 6 point range and a nasty collection of typographical oddments -- do I really need dropcaps that are hardwired to look good on a computer screen when I'm trying to read on a handheld ereader?
