good advice from paul durrant ; the more style markup you can move to the css the better. that said, things like italics are usually okay to leave in the text, although some people define them as a style as well.

div.body h4+p { text-indent: 0em; margin: 0em 0em 0em 0em }
another quick tip about css to make it shorter : when you are defining a property which has 4 possible measurements (like a margin), if they are all the same, you can just write the measurement one time, and it will be applied to all sides. if the measurement is 0, no need to specify units (em, px, etc.), you can just write : "margin: 0;"

if you are using the same measure for left and right and another meausure for top and bottom you can specify only 2 measures. the order is Top Right Bottom Left (spells TRouBLe) or Top (+ bottom) Right (+left), so for instance "margin : 0 1em;" will give a margin of 0 on the top and bottom, and 1em on the left and right.
