EPUB Margin Adjustment

Hi,

I find that commercial EPUBs often have much too large margins for my taste (when reading them on my PRS-505), so I generally strip the DRM (for my own use only!) and adjust the margins by doing en EPUB->EPUB conversion in calibre. This works well for many files, but there are some where the output still has large margins even if I set calibre to generate zero margins. I can work around this by doing and EPUB->LIT->EPUB conversion, which always seems to work, but was wondering if there's anything obvious I could be missing.

The ePubs that keep their margins must have some CSS setting that Calibre isn't resetting.

You could try taking a look at the HTML inside the ePub

It might be handy if Calibre had an option to completely replace the CSS style rules, as well as the existing add-to/override ability. Is such a thing feasible? (I'm no HTML/CSS expert).
