Side loaded ms lit conversion to nook straight from calibre. NOTE: was not using publisher defaults.

Adding a line between each paragraph.

Is the a <p>nbsp</p> line?
the text ending in a <br /> line?
Or just a margin-top or margin-bottom type line?

The are no <p>nbsp</p> lines , and all the text ending i a <br /> displays correctly.

Wheb I edit the css from:
Code:
{
    display: block;
    text-indent: 2em;
    margin: 0
}
to:
Code:
    {
    display: block;
    text-indent: 2em;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    margin-left: 0;
    margin-right: 0;
    margin-top: 0
}
the text displays on the nook correct.

Will do more tests later, no time right now.

When you use publisher defaults displays correct, only when you turn off the publisher defaults that it is not liking the short form. This is a bug in the B&N css overlay. Anybody know where/how to report a bug to B&N? Of course with their track record it will never be fixed.

Where/how do I do this? I'm on 1.7 now and I checked Common and Output Options and Tweaks but didn't see anything. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.

The option is called Expand CSS, check the box and you should be set.

Thanks for taking the time create an image and support the community.

One small error "Expand CSS" is actually under the Look & Feel section of the conversion dialog as stated above in my post. The Look and Feel area of preferences is under the Interface section of preferences.
