converting epub to mobi for kindle 3 weird hyphens

Well I am getting a kindle 3 in a few days. I have tons of amazon ebooks, but also several epubs of my own (without drm). Anyways, I wanted to convert these epubs to mobi using calibre. I have the latest version and all my books are managed in there. Well I have noticed that when converting, I am getting these weird square symbols next to hyphens in the mobi document. These aren't there in the origional epub. I have researched and found out that these are called soft hyphens and kindle can't read these and therefore puts the square in there. How can I get rid of these? The mobi file looks great except for these annoying squares. Some books have more than others. I guess I can leave them if i have to, but i am a perfectionist and like my books to be perfect. I suppose I can read the epubs on my ipad but I really want to try them out on my kindle. Any suggestions?
