unwanted table-change (vertical align) by calibre

Hello

I just worked on a html file. It looks a little bit like this: (don't worry about the lines, I just added them so to make it more clear, instead of the lines there is an empty space in my html)


First:__ text text text text
______ text text text text
______ text text text text
Second: another text another text
Third:__more text more text
______ more text more text
______ more text more text

To make it look even I made a table out of it. Also I used <td valign="top"> on the first row of every line, so that the "First", "Second", etc. always comes in the top line.
Then I converted the file with calibre to epub and now it looks like this:

_______ text text text tex
First:___text text text text
_______ text text text text
Second: another text another text
_______ more text more text
Third:__ more text more text
_______ more text more text

I was surprised, so I unziped the epub and looked at the css. And here it says:

.calibre4 {
display: table-row;
vertical-align: middle
}

I changed the vertical-align to "top" and now it looks the way I want it. Is there a way to turn this off ? Or should I overwrite it with with the extra css box. I tried it, but either I am doing it wrong, or it doesn't work. I just copied the .calibre4 with the edited "top" in it.

Basically it ain't that much of a problem, I can easily open the epub and edit the css, but I would like to know if there is an easier way, a way before the epub is finalized

thanks
