Unhappy Howto skip pagemumbers & titles a.s.o.

When I convert with calibre from pdf to epub (or whatever) page layout gimmicks like pagenumber and chapter heading are converted to - just inside the maintext. Take this one http://futureoftheinternet.org/download , calibre converts it perfect but will give:
"hobbyists who did not want to fuss with soldering irons: all the ingre1

2

Introduction

dients for a functioning PC"
which doesnot make sense and is disturbing.
Any ideas howto make a better conversion?

Thx already

Yes it is possible to strip header/footer during the conversion. Check the Calibre forum for atleast two threads about it. One contains a post of mine with a little howto. Basicly you run the conversion once with the Debug option of Calibre activated and then have a look at the output. From there you'll need to construct a regexp to remove the header/footer.
Make sure you're well rested, well fed and have some place where you can vent your anger if it doesn't work the first time around

Regards,

Joop

THX, I'll give it a try. I find out that since I got a e-reader I read less. Godd that I do like fidling around with programs.
