Converted .epub to .mobi, getting double bullets?

Hi everyone,

I'm formatting an ebook in InDesign, and exported it as an .epub. The epub looks great on the Nook and iPad. When I converted the .epub to a .mobi using Calibre, the Kindle is showing all my lists with double bullets or double numbers (see image). Is this common? And, any idea how to fix it?

If I have to, I know I can try going into the code and deleting any extra characters. But I'm wondering if there's a quick setting in Calibre I should know about first.

Thanks for your help!

I had the same problem today when I converted an epub to mobi using Calibre. The problem is Indesign CS6. Are you working in Indesign CS6? I exported my CS6 file to IDML, opened it in CS5.5. Then I created another epub from CS5.5 and converted to Mobi using Calibre. No double bullets or double numbers.
