Yes, the margins on body and paragraphs do not add up. I know I should look
this up, but what exactly defines which block elements are indented when
nested? Is <blockquote> nested within <body>? If so, then paragraphs, lists
and blockquotes have body as an ancestor and their margins should correctly
be relative to the body margin.

Thanks

Steve
