It's just easier to convert to another format and edit. I don't mind the Calibre code. It how it looks and reads on the reader that counts. I don't care for Sigil it's a little slow but I have used it once or twice. I like using Word 2003 cause I edit pretty quickly what I need with my Macros I made.
