Cannot get rid of text-indent

I'm working from a html + css file and converting to epub. I have a toc and the first item is indented. No matter how I try I can't get rid of the indent.

In the finished stylesheet.css it's in .tableofcontents and = 1.5em

I've tried:

.tableofcontents { text-indent: 0pt; } in my css file. No change.
<div class="tableofcontents" style="text-indent: 0pt;"> in the html. This is ignored too.

Any ideas?

This is how htlatex formats the html code:

Code:
       <h1 class="chapter"><a 
 id="x1-1000"></a>Contents</h1> <div class="tableofcontents">
       <span class="chapterToc" > <a  
href="#Q1-1-3">Introduction</a></span>
Edit* I found out that somehow the indent is set with --remove-paragraph-spacing
I removed that option and it's fine now. I thought that option was only for spaces between paragraphs?

When you use remove paragraph spacing an indent is automatically added, as otherwise you cannot distinguish paragraphs. There is an additional option to control that amount of indent.

I see. Thanks. What if a book is non-fiction with unindented paragraphs. Is there a way to detect that, or should I just use a p { text-indent: 0pt; } rule?

If you want to remove spacing between paragraphs and not have the indents change at all then follow the guidelines in the pop-up when you hover over Indent size, specifically the last sentence.
