blockquote grievance

Just to confirm - K3 is doing <blockquote> with a 4em indent, no matter what you tell it to do in CSS?

If you create a mobi7, then the block quotations are going to be the mobi7 standard. They cannot be changed. The newer KF8 format allows more options.

Depends how you convert with Calibre - I can produce 4em or 2em indents on blockquotes. Also took me a bit of fiddling to get h1 and h2 tags to be different sizes

With KinderPreviewer, it shows a 4em indent on the blockquote but it's actually 2em when loaded onto the Kindle - which is what I told it to be in stylesheet so unless that's a conincidence...!
