Thanks for your reply. It seems that every time I sort out one problem, another reappears. I had sorted out indented paras by changing the margins to 0.1. Now I have sorted out the problem of each page looking crammed up against the right margin, with a gap down the left, by changing the html code for the left margin to 0cm,. But this has made the paras indent again, even though the format still says 0.1.

Thanks for this. I think I have now managed to sort
out the margins. In the html code I reduced the left
margin parameters to 0cm from 2.85pt and it looks
balanced and fine. HOWEVER, a problem I originally
had, and had solved, has reappeared as a result. I
don't want indented paragraphs because much of my
book is comprised of sub-headings and these, on top
of indented paras, look ridiculous. I had got rid of
them by adjusting all paragraph margins to 0.1 in the
original word format, but now I have changed the left
margins - they're back, even though the 0.1 margins
remain in the formatting. Would be grateful for your
thoughts. Thanks.

Change/add "text-indent:0;" to your main paragraph class.

Make sure that they have space between, otherwise your book is going to be impossible to read.

I, too, found some of my Word text underlined in the HTML document when it was not in the original Word document. After viewing the text in an HTML viewer, I found that the underlined text was listed as a subtitle. I did correct this in the HTML editor, but then went back to the original Word document. When I selected the text that was underlined in the HTML document, but not in the Word document, and wentto the HOME tab, I found that the STYLE for the selected text was linked to the SUBTITLE style. I then changed the style to NORMAL, which I modified to the font size and style I wanted (non underlined) and then created a new HTML unfiltered file. The new file had the text displayed properly - no underlines. It was easier to make the changes in the Word document than to use an HTML editor.
