Question .epub to .mobi conversion Kindle3

Can anyone please tell this newbie why, when converting .epub to .mobi for the Kindle3, the resulting file has an indent of approx. 1 inch from the left hand edge of the screen for all text?

Many thanks for any help.

tweak_epu and Notepad2 worked like a charm. Took a few goes to get it right but changing every 'margin-left:' entry to '0;' was to my liking.

Many thanks again.
