Can anyone tell me what this error is

When converting a Book from epub to mobi most seem to go ok, but a few seem to hang up and sit till I stop the job.

one error that seems to crop up is the following

[ERROR] Property: Invalid value for "CSS Level 2.1" property: line-height: pt

Anyone know what I need to do to rectify it.

I just ran into the same problem with a recently-downloaded 1633 Baen LIT file. The file failed to convert to MOBI:

It may not be serious, but it's annoying and makes the conversions seem to take forever! Any idea how to set up the source rtf file so this doesn't happen?

I'm converting from rtf to mobi format for my kindle.

Thank you!

Save your rtf as html first and then convert it
