Package: dbtoepub
Version: 0+svn9150-2 

I've verified that the problem exist with version 0+svn9904-1 too.

In my docbook project I use <blockquote> to indent quotes, and while
dblatex and docbook-xsl/fop correctly format this, I just noticed
dbtoepub do not indent the text at all.

Here is an example <blockquote> fragment:

<preface id="preface">
<emphasis role="bold">At the end</emphasis> of his review of my first
book, <citetitle>Code: And Other Laws of Cyberspace</citetitle>, David
Pogue, a brilliant writer and author of countless technical and
computer-related texts, wrote this:
Unlike actual law, Internet software has no capacity to punish. It
doesn't affect people who aren't online (and only a tiny minority
of the world population is). And if you don't like the Internet's
system, you can always flip off the modem.<footnote id="preface01"><para>
David Pogue, <quote>Don't Just Chat, Do Something,</quote>
<citetitle>New York Times</citetitle>, 30 January 2000.
Pogue was skeptical of the core argument of the book—that
software, or <quote>code,</quote> functioned as a kind of law—and
his review suggested the happy thought that if life in cyberspace got
bad, we could always <quote>drizzle, drazzle, druzzle,
drome</quote>-like simply flip a switch and be back home. Turn off the
modem, unplug the computer, and any troubles that exist in
<emphasis>that</emphasis> space wouldn't <quote>affect</quote> us

The text is not indented when I look at it using fbreader.  I expected
the epub to contain a normal HTML <blockquote> with the content.

Happy hacking
