CSS Styles From InDesign 5.5 Export Problem

I've been having this problem, and was wondering if other have run in to it. When I export my epub from InDesign, it makes a bunch of styles for the same thing.

For example my header style is

Quote:
header
{
font-size: 1.5 em;
font-weight: bold;
margin-bottom: 0.5em;
}
but then for every chapter, it creates a new style, even though it does the same thing. So my CSS comes out looking like:

Quote:
header
{
font-size: 1.5 em;
font-weight: bold;
margin-bottom: 0.5em;
}

header-1
{
font-size: 1.5 em;
font-weight: bold;
margin-bottom: 0.5em;
}

header-2
{
font-size: 1.5 em;
font-weight: bold;
margin-bottom: 0.5em;
}
header-3
{
font-size: 1.5 em;
font-weight: bold;
margin-bottom: 0.5em;
}
It does this for all my styles, so my CSS is very cluttered when using 5.5, I have resorted to using CS4 because I didn't have this problem.

Any suggestions on what might be causing this. Just for reference, I create a chapter, and make all the styles for it. I then pour each chapter into the same file and save it as a new name. So I'm not sure if thats what is giving me all the multiple styles or if its something else.

Thanks in advance for any help.
