Epub Catalog has left edge missing

I've spent a few days searching for a solution to this, and can't find anything, so here's to hoping it's not the one thing I missed. :P

I'm attempting to make a calibre catalog to carry on my Nook, and I'm having the exact same error each time in the actual formatting. I go to the catalog screen, choose epub as the format and name it Appendix. In the E-book options, I pick for it to include Author, Title, and Series, and leave the rest as the default.

When it generates, every page has the first few characters missing from the side of each line. For instance, the Authors section starts with;

Code:
   Ben Aaronovitch
Moon over Soho
Rivers of London
   Edwin A. Abbott
Flatland
   Dan Abnett
Eisenhorn Omnibus
Ravenor Omnibus
The way it displays, however, is like this;

Code:
 Ben Aaronovitch
oon over Soho
vers of London
 Edwin A. Abbott
atland
 Dan Abnett
senhorn Omnibus
venor Omnibus
Regardless of how the window is adjusted. If I go into Sigil and look into the epub on code view, the entire thing is there, it's just formatted with some of it pushed over the left edge. I even tried deleting the margin code on the top of the page, and still got nothing.

Any ideas? I've attached the catalog that calibre generates, if you have any ideas.

The problem is the catalog appears to expect margins
The line being cropped is covered by
Code:
.unreadbook {
    display: block;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    margin-right: 0;
    margin-top: 0;
    text-align: left;
    text-indent: -2em
    }

Increase your margin setting in the Nook. I'm guessing the Nook is overriding the margins specified in the epub.

I've never tried it on my Sony, but calibre's viewer has the same issue and as theducks says I just delete the offending margin code.

Ah in that case this is probably caused by the remove fake margins code, I've turned that off for catalog generation.
