Does this enable wider margins than the current firmware?

Wider? The widest are ½" on a Paperwhite and almost ¾" on the Oasis. That makes columns of 2.5" and not quite 3". You want columns even more narrow?

By "wider" I meant less narrow... as in text closer to the edge of the page.

I've learned how to adjust the books themselves using Calibre, to get the margin to about 1/16th of an inch. It works on both my Paperwhite and 2nd gen Oasis.

Probably not, sadly. It's mad how fat the minimum margin is. Setting it negative in the CSS is possible.

The following code works well on a 300DPI Kindle in KF8 (not tested with KFX).

Code:
html {
  margin-right:-45px;
  margin-left: -45px;
}
Put that at the top of the CSS.

Maybe, but if that's the case, then he has the terminology all wrong.

You actually should have said narrower margins. That's the correct terminology.

Sometimes, when my eye muscles are tired and reading in bed sans glasses, I use the narrow column choice. When I read this way, the Kindle screen is very close to my face, 6-7 inches. A more narrow column means less eye travel back and forth, and I can actually read much faster with less muscle fatigue.

All of these different options are what make reading on an e-reader so wonderful. I can change the settings depending on my vision needs at any one moment. I am not a "set it and forget it" type of reader. Sometimes I need more white space, so I use a wider line spacing. Sometimes I need a larger font, and so on.

There is no "default" setting for me. It all depends on what tricks my brain is playing with my eyes on any certain day.

I find the narrowest margins on my Kindles fine. Possibly because I read exclusively on Kindles for many years. I don't use the narrowest possible margins on my Kobo either.

Ditto for line-spacing.

As to font sizes, I use the font_ramp hack on my Kindles. Sometimes I switch between sizes 4 and 5 on my custom scale. On my Kobo I seldom switch between font sizes. On my Nook I use customized base font size and so I never switch there.

I should add that all my ebooks have uniform margins, line-spacing and base font size, so I don't have to change them between books.
