I see , in lots of retail epubs, a blockquote setting of left 2em, right 0em.
so when blockquote is used, typically to show a newspaper ,diary or book extract within the story, the text looks off to my eyes on an e-reader.
Sigil's increase indent changes only the left margin.
surely a blockquote would look better if centred i.e. with left and right margins both the same, or am I out of step with the universe here ?
is there some typesetting convention or medieval hangover that says shove all "extracts" text to the right , hard up to RH edge, via blockquotes ?
And if the blockquote is supposed to be a diary entry, storywise, or a handwritten letter, then surely it would be more authentic to have no paragraph indents , no justification, and more space between paragraphs. I don't recall the last time I wrote a paper letter but I'm pretty sure it would not have been fully justified
most ( though I admit, not all) retail books seem to use the same paragraph css class inside of the blockquote as they do outside. Is that laziness or typesetters 101 class training?
