General Formatting Questions

The place I’m really struggling, is with the formatting. I’m creating a mobi book, and if you can answer these questions, I think I will get onto the right track.

shows the mobi in the previewer on the left and the document on the right.

  1. I set the title to be bold and significantly larger than the other text, why isn’t it?
  2. Why is there a bullet next to the line that has the date in it?
  3. Why isn’t my block quote indented?
  4. Why isn’t my numbered list displayed properly?
  5. When I send the mobi file to my Nexus 7 Kindle reader, there is no space between the paragraphs. Why is that?

Thank you,

Al
