Paragraph indents on Kindle

Post by Prezzer » 10 Jul 2012, 03:04

Hi all,
So when exporting my ebook file to a Kindle .mobi format, for some reason it makes every paragraph contain a large indent at the start, regardless of whether they're tagged as 'body' 'headline' 'pullquote' or whatever. The indents aren't there when I export the same file to other ebook formats (.epub or Blio ebook) but only in the Kindle outputted file.
Why is this and is there a way to remove them? I have seen other titles produced on Kindle that don't have indents everywhere so I figure it must be possible.

Are the paragraphs formatted correctly, with to open and
to end each paragraph? That's the only thing I can think of.
