I have never dealt with the Nook either, but I guess you can
do some things about this. You can use standard tags when possible. With proper CSS styling these two codes should look exactly the same (when the styles are not
<p>Dear Mr. Jones,</p>
<p>I'm using some <em>italic</em> text.</p>
<div class="blockquote first">Dear Mr. Jones,</div>
<div class="blockquote last">I'm using some <span class="italic">italic</span> text.</div>
But, when the styles are
ignored, chances are the first code will be displayed much more nicely than the second. That is, assuming some default styling is used anyway (like browsers do).
