The Kobo thinks he can cut of the words there. I can delete every <span> and <\SPAN> in Sigil by checking ever page and that clears the screen... but I was wondering if there is an easier way in Calibre.
Don't know how to solve it in an easy way for all my books
What a strange place to put span tags! I don't really understand why they're there, that's just weird. Did the books come from an unreliable source?

I don't think Calibre can get rid of them all for you. The code it can change - as far as I know - is the CSS (stylesheets). But maybe someone else will know more and jump in.

In Sigil however, you can get them all removed in one go, but you'll have to do each book individually. Plus, all the span tags that are useful will be gone too, but you might not notice that.

Open the book in Sigil, be sure to view the book in Code mode.
- In the Edit menu, click "Replace"
- The dialog box comes up, and fill "<span>" in the "Find what" field
- Leave the "Replace with" field empty
- Look in: "All HTML files"
- Click "Replace all"

Then do the same for the </span> tag, and save!
