@Lurker,

Are you using MSWord to create your RTFs? If so I think you'll get the best results if you use Word styles to create your indents - not tabs or non-breaking spaces.

Personally I prefer to use MSWord doc to filtered html to epub if my source is a Word document, but MSWord to RTF to epub/mobi seems to work OK in the attached sample RTF (containing paragraph indent, non-indent, centred) when converted to epub or mobi.

I also never use the calibre 'Remove spacing...' and 'Insert blank line...' options as I find them too much of a blunt instrument, causing more problems than they fix.

I've also attached the converted mobi.

[Added:] These were the conversion options used
