I have never tweaked a book in calibre before. Do I simply delete the whole line?
the CSS says:

margin-bottom: 0;
margin-left: 5pt;
margin-right: 5pt;
margin-top: 0;

Do I delete the two middle lines (left and right margins), then save the .css?
Just thought I'd better check in case I can stuff something up!

That didn't actually work - the margins became fixed at 0 on the KT and I couldn't change them. However, I deleted the line completely and left no reference to left or right margins. That worked.

Thanks for your help everyone.

You can delete the CSS for the margins right in Calibre itself. For a single book:

Right click on a book
Choose Convert books/convert individually
Click on Look and Feel
Click on the Filter Style Information tab
Select Margins so that it has a check next to it
Click OK

Let Calibre do its thing and the CSS for Margins will be removed. You then have full control over the margins when you load the book on your Kobo Touch.

Don't forget to check too the square "Remove spacing between paragraphs"... if not, calibre will add space.
So you need check squares "remove spacing" AND "Margins".

In what way will calibre add space between the paragraphs? Will it add space when you make the margins larger using the slider in the kobo?

Without "remove space between paragraphs" the style for paragraphs is to put a space between them and not indent the first line. With it checked, the space between paragraphs is the same as the space between lines. Plus you get the "Indent size" field is enabled. With this checked, the text will look more like a paper book.
