Here you go:

Code:
<body class="calibre">
  <p class="chapter" id="calibre_toc_2"><span class="s1"><i class="calibre3">Chapter One</i></span></p>

  <p class="p9"></p>

  <p class="p13"><span class="s1">Angels were falling all over the place.</span></p>

  <p class="p13"><span class="s1">Miles blinked, trying to resolve the golden streaks sleeting through his vision into mere retinal flashes, but they stubbornly persisted as tiny, distinct figures, faces dismayed, mouths round. He heard their wavering cries like the whistle of fireworks from far off, the echoes buffeted by hillsides.</span></p>
I've been trying to fix this myself. At first I used Turtle91's suggestion to add "p {text-indent:1.2em}", but this caused the centered chapter titles ("Chapter One", etc.) to be indented. So I looked a little deeper and saw that each paragraph was using "p13" and "s1". I assume "p13" refers to different paragraph styles - why there are so many is beyond me. I tried adding the indent to "p13" (what is a "span class" anyway?). And it worked!

Here is what I came up with:

Code:
.p13 {
    display: block;
    font-family: "Minion Pro";
    font-size: 0.70588em;
    font-style: normal;
    font-variant: normal;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: normal;
    text-indent: 1.2em;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    margin-left: 0;
    margin-right: 0;
    margin-top: 0;
    text-align: justify
    }
I assume I could have added it anywhere within the braces, right?

Here is the original:

Code:
.s1 {
    letter-spacing: -0.8px
    }
And I just took it out:

Code:
.s1 {
    }
Done! Thank you for all your help! I still have to test it on Kindle iOS, but for that I have to take it home to convert with Calibre. I'm not scared to tweak this stuff any more, so I will try to add some space between the chapter title and the body of text.

Thanks again!

BAEN has been using Calibre for a long time now.
