    If they are normal,  why would you not use them?

    I suspect Dan is writing a book on how to publish a book consisting of hundreds of Y!A answers gathered over the years.

    What other types of margins were you considering?

    Dan, do you not own any books? You've been posting about this literally for years now. Years. Imagine if you were building a birdhouse instead of attempting to author a book - wouldn't you take the time to actually see what a completed birdhouse looks like? Practically every author who self-publishes is flogging his or her book online and practically every site that they use is equipped with a feature where you can look inside the book. Most literally give the first chapter away for free. You could scroll through thousands of pages and see what different authors have done - what their covers and blurbs look like, what font they use, all of that. It only stands to reason that a person who claims to be authoring and self-publishing a book would be interested enough in how it's done to be a tad proactive about it. What do you have against lifting a finger to educate and enlighten yourself? You've asked dozens of questions over the years, and no matter what advice you get you're back 48 hours later asking about something else that you ought to have worked out back in the summer of 2018. Why haven't you contacted someone who's self-published to ask these specific questions? If you don't plan on getting around to actually doing anything of substance, move on to something else already. And if you're serious about getting this done before Jesus comes back, rattle your dags, boy.
