How do you turn off default text-indent <p> in Nook

I have been trying to turn off the default text-indent for the paragraphs in Nook.
This is my Css
p {
margin: 0;
text-align: left;
line-height: 1.5em;
text-indent: 0em;
}
Any ideas?

Sorry I'm a newbie. I am involved in testing epub and kindle files and happy to have your forum for support. Thanks for all the great information.

Hi! I'm having the same issue. First lines will often come with an automatic text-indent, even if it's not defined in the stylesheet.

This issue was also discussed some time ago in passing here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=103533

For instance, on the Nook, for something that's supposed to be centred, it'll be off-center, slightly to the left. In ADE, Sigil, iPad, etc. it renders fine.

Is there any way around this? Even manually adding the following to book stylesheets doesn't seem to work:
Code:
p, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, div, span { text-indent: 0em; }

On the Nook Color, Tablet, and Simple Touch, at the bottom of the text options dialog there is a setting for "Publisher Defaults". If you turn this on then the only styling used will be the one in the ebub. If this is off (which is the default), then additional CSS will be inserted to change font, line spacing and margin as well as others.

I incidentally used a child selector to fix some inheritance issues for p tags that were not direct children of body. This seems to work for me on nook touch:
Code:
body > p{text-indent:0em;}
It seems that !important was ignored, but specificity was respected.

Use text-indent: 0; instead of text-indent: 0em;.

Here is a css stylesheet that works on my Nook, using the both the publisher defaults and the nook settings.

Code:
.calibre {
