For submission to the Kindle ebook store through Amazon Digital Services, you should really format it yourself in Mobipocket format for best results.
Starting with clean HTML will help, and then run it through Mobipocket Creator (free).
So - the Mobipocket forum is probably the best place to ask questions. I'm sure you'll find plenty of people to help with tips and advice -- several other writers have.

Unfortunately, I'm a novice and newbie and I'm neither technically nor html savvy. I know a little bit, like the basics, I can navigate the Internet with ease and I am fine with my word processing programs, but the special formatting and conversions are driving me crazy!
It is very important to me that I finish this project that I started and submit my e-book. I've written a very important non-fiction e-book that needs to be read asap yesterday because of the important subject matter. Please help, I'd appreciate it. Thank you. And if there is a more appropriate forum, please direct me there. I will post right away. Thank you.
