We have this instance of Liferay 6.2.x running in a local environment. Now we have to change look and feel of the pages. But the web editor doesn't retain indentation and the sections on pages (Web Content) feel very cluttery.

How to deal with this? Pardon me if my question is silly.

Portals are almost by their very definition "cluttery". A Portal isn't something you use to display pretty web pages like it was Drupal or something, it's a way of presenting "dashboards" where lots of probably-unrelated items are presented on a single "at-a-glance" display. Accent on "lots". As in "clutter".

The user/admin can customized their dashboard to select what items they want to follow, and to a limited extent, where on the display the item will be placed. But the actual "page" is just a scaffold to hold them.

You can do stuff with CSS to change the appearance somewhat, but you're still limited in that you mustn't break the functionality just because you don't like the appearance.
