However I dont know enough about code to tell from the inspect tool what it is you wanted to know.
However I managed to fix my problem my converting to TXT, opening in word, doing a find and replace on multiple paragraph marks. Re-converted back to epub and now it looks fine.
I'm sure there's a much quicker way but for now my problem has been fixed.
As Valentino mentioned, you lost formatting by doing a conversion to text, followed by reconversion.
Also, a conversion to TXT will usually put a second paragraph mark after each paragraph break even if the first didn't have one. (In text format, that's how paragraphs are marked.) You probably created the double paragraph marks when you created the text format.
Even worse, the conversion from TXT to EPUB will usually strip out double breaks automatically, so you didn't need to edit them out first.
Most likely, it was just a formatting issue in your original document and by going through the text format, it was stripped out, so it worked in the end. All you probably had to do was just fix the original formatting issue.
