I do believe I answered my own question. I also had the first line indented 2p0, just like the other normal paragraphs. I set the drop cap to 0p0 - on a lark - and the problem resolved itself. I supposed, with a drop cap, there's really no need to indent, so I won't!
However, if anyone knows a way to indent the first line 2p0 without the space after a drop cap, that'd be nice to know. otherwise, I'm okay for now. Thanks!

Without seeing the file it's impossible for me to guess but I can tell you that you shouldn't expect an Epub layout to exactly mimic an InDesign layout.
You'd need to look at the HTML and CSS files to figure out why you have that space.
Thank you, Bob. I don't use CSS or HTML files. This is a novel, so I'm copying and pasting from the word processor (without formatting). This makes more sense for me, since it's text-only. This allows for very simple and quick formatting.
In my case, the added ugly space was caused by indenting the first line of the paragraph. Now, finally, I can get some sleep! LOL
I meant in the Epub. It's based completely on HTML and CSS.
