Colored quotes -> underline

I have an ebook in epub format which contains many quotations. These quotations are not only bounded in " marks, they are also colored blue. When Calibre converts the quotations to mobi format for my B&W Kindle, the quotations are now underlined. This is very distracting, and I would like to have the converted quotes without the underlining. I'm sure there must be an easy way to do this, but I am just not familiar enough with all the Calibre conversion options to know what to set. Can someone tell me how to turn off this underlining? Thanks!

Blue usually mean 'Link'. Have you tried clicking on the Blue words?
e-Ink does not have a 'Blue'
so links are made to show by underlining them .
So.... do you still want to remove these indications of linkage?

Link it is

You're absolutely right; they are links to entries in the endnotes. I just wasn't used to seeing whole paragraphs as a link. It's ungainly to read, but I can live with it -- I don't want to delete links.

That is a terrible implementation (and yes, I have recently seen this)

You will need a Editing program (Like Sigil) to move the trailing </a> (and maybe some other closing spans or div to a more reasonable, readablity point .
