Calibre's generated css for epub

I'm looking at the generated css from calibre, and I have some questions:

@page {
size: 8.5in 11.0in;
margin: 1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in
}
is showing up. The outputs in epub (see my post in the epub forum) are making the sony softwares put huge margins in the file - these are not my printer settings from the software I'm using to make the html (Word), nor are they from my default printer on the computer. Is this reason I'm seeing weirdnesses and maybe some crashes in epub? I don't see a place to set this in calibre.....

in another one, I found this:

@page {
size: 8.5in 11.0in;
margin: 1.0in 65.95pt 1.0in 65.95pt
}
This file won't open in sony software nor on a 700.


@font-face {
font-family: PoynterGothicText-Black;
panose-1: 2 0 10 3 5 0 0 2 0 4
}
is showing up for every font on my machine - also, something I don't see how to control in calibre........


span.msoDel {
text-decoration: line-through;
color: red
}
and assorted other decorations are showing up - I'm presuming they're calibre defaults.

If I override the css in calibre - do these things clean up? or does it compound the css generated by calibre?
