Formatting issue

I'm using Sigil 0.5.3, and I'm coming across something odd.

I edit my ePub file, to have spaces between a set of quotes...for instance:

Code:
"all the world is a stage"
-author

"Love trouble will burst your bubble"
-author

And when I view it in Calibre everything looks fine. But when I transfer the ePub to my Nook Color...or Android Phone...or any other reading software, the spaces end up not being there. I have no idea what is going on.

It would look like this
Code:
"all the world is a stage"
-author
"Love trouble will burst your bubble"
-author
I can email the epub to anyone if they are able to take a look at it...it's a copy-written work so I don't want to just post it, but I'm confused as to why this is happening.

In order too keep the first post clean, here is what the page looks like in Sigil Code:


Code:
 <style type="text/css">
/*<![CDATA[*/

  @page { margin-bottom: 5.000000pt; margin-top: 5.000000pt; }

  br.sgc-7 {display: block;}
  span.sgc-6 {font-size: 1em;}
  span.sgc-5 {font-size: 1em; font-style: italic;}
  p.sgc-4 {display: block; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: justify;}
  p.sgc-3 {display: block; font-style: italic; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: center}
  span.sgc-2 {font-size: 1em; font-style: normal}

Empty p elements will rarely create a space on any ADE based eReader.
Code:
<p class="calibre4 sgc-4"></p>
Try:
Code:
<p class="calibre4 sgc-4"><br /></p>
or:
Code:
<p class="calibre4 sgc-4">&nbsp;</p>
instead.

Or better yet, create another css class that applies a "margin-top: xx" value, that can be assigned to paragraphs that need space between them and the preceding paragraph(s).
