lamb replied
back, "That's why they call me Borox, lady." And everyone laughed and
laughed so that
it seemed the entire barnyard filled with noise.

Until now I was using the default 500 conversion. But I need to go custom, right? What settings do ya'll use to make pretty-looking LIT conversions for the Sony Reader?
By "indenting on the sides" you mean the margins? I use a header, 36 pixel margins on the sides, and a 10 pixel margin on the bottom, but YMMV.

As for "lines keep dropping," I'm not sure what you mean. Is text from the source LIT file not appearing in the LRF file? If so, that's probably an html2lrf bug and you should submit an issue on the calibre trac.
