This has been discussed on the XSL list. It's somewhat tricky

  div.sect > p { margin-top:0pt ...

you'll probably have to generate an XSLT style sheet which matches
on p[ancestor::div[class='sect']], and I'm sure it gets messy soon.

Many DAU programs use forms and wizards for specifying the presentational

or XML in this case.
