Property name and value must be separated by a colon (consider it like a = sign). After the value, a semicolon is needed; it is optional just before the closing brace, but it's safest to always add it.

And is

body {margin-left:0;
margin-right:0;
margin-top:0;
margin_bottom.0;}

more correct than

p {margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt; padding: 0pt;
text-indent: 15pt;}
0 and 0pt are the same, when the value is 0 you don't need to specify the units. body and p are different elements (p is inside body), so modifying them can give different results. You probably want both things, I'd use:

Code:
body { margin: 0; }
p { margin: 0; padding: 0; text-indent: (whatever); }
