Blockquote css

i hope this is the place to ask this question.

Somewhere I found this CSS defination for BLOCKQUOTE:

Code:
.blockquot{
margin-bottom:1em;
margin-top:1em;
margin-left:3em;
margin-right:0;
font-size:100%;
}
When I try to increase the margin-left: nothing changes.
What is wrong?

Multiple things wrong. You have a 0 right margin. You have a font size that's not part of a blockquote. Your left margin is too big and the right margin needs to match. And you have the name of the class wrong.

Code:
blockquote {
margin-top: 1em;
margin-bottom: 1em;
margin-left: 1.5em;
margin-right: 1.5em
}
Now that is correct. The left/right margins are set for using a text indent no larger than 1.2em.

Hey Crutledge,

The styling of your blockquote isn't the problem...although I like Jon's styling, it is completely beside the point.

The problem is that you are defining blockquote as a class when you add the "." in front of the name. You would have to use <blockquote class="blockquot"> for that styling to work. Simply remove the "." add the "e" and define it as:

Code:
blockquote {
margin-bottom:1em;
margin-top:1em;
margin-left:3em;
margin-right:0;
font-size:100%;
}
although, FWIW, I do agree that Jon's styling is better...

Nonsense. CSS styles can be used in any ebook format that uses HTML/CSS in its source files. The workshop is certainly the right place.

Will "margin" work for Nook, or will "padding" have to be used instead?

I'm pretty sure Nook handles margins correctly (for values other than "auto", which, like all ADE-based readers, Nook handles in a horrible way that is technically compliant with the EPUB spec, while at at the same time being thoroughly non-compliant with both the letter and the spirit of the CSS spec on which EPUB is ostensibly based).

Note, however, that other ADE-based readers collapse element margins into the page margin, which can cause problems, so for a more general solution, padding is probably a better choice.
