This leaves me to believe that the conversion process from epub to awz3 is not working. Should I be setting some options in Calibre? Sometimes, I like to use the viewer to check my changes.
From what you describe above it may be working fine. You say the azw3 file on your Kindle looks good, and the epub in ADE looks fine. Don't use the calibre viewer as a guide for non epub books. The calibre viewer is a epub viewer that does a quick and dirty conversion of the azw3 prior to viewing so the azw3 may or may not be correct. Try viewing the azw3 in Kindle Previewer to see how your file looks on Kindle devices.

Good Luck.
