Unhappy Help! epub book looks awful on Nook previewer

If this posting is in the wrong place, please let me know...outside of the Nook Developers forum, I couldn't find where to post a Nook question.

I have an epub book that I am trying to put on the BN bookstore. It looks fine on Calibre, Sigil and other desktop ebook readers. But, when I upload the file to Pubit, the previewed book is awful. I looked at the guidelines, which state that for a Nook, the CSS margins must be pixels not ems. I converted everything in my CSS to pixels (margins, font specs) but it didn't change anything. The formatting on the title page is nonexistent, same for chapter heads, captions and text. Does the Nook not recognize any formatting? It does seem to recognize the spacing between chapters, photos, captions, etc. but it adds a space between every paragraph. Color photos are fine but any color in the fonts is ignored. Can anyone enlighten me on what I need to do to get the Nook to recognize my formatting?
