Make sure in your local.css file exists and is actually called by the browser. 
Your own file shoud be 'pub/css/local.css' with 'pub' situated in the same 
directory where your 'index.php' file is. In case you have a wikifarm 
installation, only the local field's 'pub' directory can contain local.css, 
Group.css and Group.Page.css that override the skin's css and pmwiki's 
internal css.

You could otherwise add "!important" at the end of your local.css 
definitions :
   .indent { margin-left: 20px !important; }

You can remove all standard wikistyles by adding this line to local/config.php
  $EnableStdWikiStyles = 0;

Note that this will remove things that you probably need, this is recommended 
for advanced wiki admins only.

PmWiki works fine with UTF-8 if you add near the beginning of config.php this 

It takes care of headers, of the <meta...utf8/> tag, and of some optimisations 
like case-insensitive searches.
