Thanks for the heads up where to find the original .prc.

By the way, I was referring to 'line-spacing' i.e. space between lines (not indentation) when I said it was a bit much.

As it turns out, this .IMP ebook was made with the 'medium' font size (not JSWolf's doing).

I attach the proper .IMP ebook that 'mobi2imp' should have generated, but didn't due to a 'bug'.

It seems the original .prc has as its <body>:
Code:
<body bgcolor="#ffffff" style="FONT-WEIGHT:normal; FONT-SIZE:medium; MARGIN-BOTTOM:245px; LINE-HEIGHT:normal; FONT-FAMILY:Times New Roman" text="#000000">
As I usually just insert the margins/fontsize just after <body, I got:
Code:
<BODY style="margin-left:2%; margin-right:2%; text-align:justify" bgcolor="#ffffff" style="FONT-WEIGHT:normal; FONT-SIZE:medium; MARGIN-BOTTOM:245px; LINE-HEIGHT:normal; FONT-FAMILY:Times New Roman" text="#000000">
That means that even though the 'small' font should have been used, the second in-line style in the body tag superceds that; or anything I would have put first like 'font-size:small;'.

I fixed 'mobi2imp' to remove that 'FONT-SIZE:medium;', in fact, remove anything in the <body> tag before I start 'fixing'.

I will change 'mobi2imp' to accomodate this! Stay tuned for version 8 ...
