Can't remove wide margin left side :(

The Author somehow has included a WIDE margin on the left side of the book and for the life of me I can't find out how to remove it. This is what it says at the top of the page:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Learning</title>
<link href="../Styles/stylesheet1.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<style type="text/css">
/*<![CDATA[*/

@page { margin-bottom: 5.000000pt; margin-top: 5.000000pt; }
/*]]>*/
</style>
</head>

<body class="calibre" id="filepos175">
<div class="mbppagebreak" id="calibre_pb_2"></div>

<blockquote class="calibre8">
<blockquote class="calibre9">
<a class="calibre13" href="../Text/Learning_split_002.html#filepos18839"><span class="calibre3 italic bold calibre14 underline">One</span></a>
</blockquote>
</blockquote>

<blockquote class="calibre8">
<blockquote class="calibre9">
C<span class="calibre4">ODY</span> C<span class="calibre4">OLEMAN</span> <span class="calibre4">

******************

But then I see on down in the page:

</blockquote>
</blockquote>

<blockquote class="calibre10">
<blockquote class="calibre11">

and I don't think I've ever see that before. Is that what is making it do that?

That is NOT a margin problem.

You have nested (2 sets deep of) blockquotes. Each steps in a set amount (usually determined by the reading device).
Remove a (matching) pair an see if it pleases

You showed multiple PAIRS:
Be sure to get the correct TAG pairs or

Oh, I didn't see that.

But I did find another answer through searching again through the Calibre forum. Duh. I haven't used Sigil enough.

Searching through the Stylesheet showed me that there was a .5em margin coded in there. Once I set that to Zero I was all set I didn't even know the stylesheet was there or that I could edit it.

Learn something new everyday. I love Sigil.
