David,
this is very curious:

body {
   margin-left: 15%;
   margin-right: 15%;
   font-size: 12pt/14pt;
   font-weight: medium;
   font-family: Times, "Baskerville SSi", baskerville, bodoni, times;
}

blockquote {
   font-style: normal;
   margin-left: 10%;
   margin-right: 10%;
}

The blockquote margin-left is equal to the text margin-left. It is moved
*back* to the left by this setting.

I tried setting the margin-left: 0% and see the indent. About margin-left: 5%.
