I was having similar "wonky" problems with converting my styles for bulleted and numbered lists and indented paragraphs from RH to Word print docs. While it's certainly not an ideal solution, I ended up fixing the problem by deleting all my bulleted and numbered lists styles and just using the default lists/indents that are generated when you click the bullet /number/indent formatting icons in RH. It took a few hours to reformat all topics, but now my lists are completely stable in both print and online form and I'm a much happier camper. Also, it really helps if you are comfortable creating formatted lists right in HTML. With a little bit of knowledge of how to use <ul>, <li>, and <ol> tags (it's not hard), you can very quickly fix almost any bullet/number/indent problems from TrueCode view.
As Kathy mentioned, your best method is no styles, just the default toolbar buttons.
One important point to keep in mind: RH is really helpful (it thinks) when you try interrupting a list with some plain text. It says to itself: "My master obviously wants to end this list." and then afterwards "Oh, my master wants a new list." Just get comfortable going into the TrueCode and removing the ending and starting UL or OL tags, so that you end up with a single list, not many.
Oh, sorry, I forgot about your other style issues!
Cascading Style Sheets means:
Styles in an external style sheet (.css file)
are superceded by styles within your topic's HEAD section
which are superceded by styles applied to elements within your topic's content
Styles in RH are similar to styles in Word, in that they assume baseline formats from the style they were used to create them.
Styles applied to table content can override the table template that was used (RH default or your own).
If you check the TrueCode, I'm pretty sure you'll find some indents with negative numbers.
