bibliography entries from LyX

Hi there,
I'm not particularly good at CSS or XHTML, have the following problem:
I export my book with LyX to XHTML.
Bibliography labels show as
[number] entry
by means of :before :after inside the class spec:

<style type="text/css">
div.bibtexentry { margin-left: 2em; text-indent: -2em; }
span.bibtexlabel:before{ content: "["; }
span.bibtexlabel:after{ content: "] "; }
</style>

<span class='bibtexlabel'>1</span><span>entry</span>

However, when Calibre imports this, it seems to ignore the span class, as the entries are

<span>1</span><span>entry</span>

and so show as
numberentry
not really good looking.
Is there anything I can do so Calibre gets the correct formatting for these labels?
Yes, I can pre-process the XHTML, that is my last resort.
Any ideas ?

BTW, hello everyone, I'm new ;^)

Post a full example and I'll take a look. But note that you really should not rely on "bore, :after and content, their support in book readers is likely to be very spotty, not to mention, completely absent in all formats other than epub.

Hi Kovid,
attached is a small fragment with some references, the XHTML (packed by Calibre into a zip) and the EPUB output from Calibre

Thanks for your advice, I'll see with the LyX guys if I can remove those tags and output something more ebook friendly
