Calibre collapses paragraph margins - why?
I'm formatting a book in HTML, and I want to lay out my paragraphs with no text-indent, but a 6pt gap between paragraphs. If I code like this:
But completely different <p> tags, say referring to a chapter title and body text will have gaps between them. After much fiddling around, I've discovered that any paragraph with the same attributes as the previous paragraph will be completely collapsed into each other, with all margin information discarded. For example, the following will give exactly the same result as the last example:
Thank you for any suggestions! At the moment I'm doing all my books with alternating paragraph classes, very clunky.

That's an optimization, creating too many text blocks in an LRF file results in the sony reader rebooting on longer files. Unfortunately, that means you cant achieve the effect you want, except with the alternate classes.
