Question conversion RTF to EPUB problem; small fonts

hi there,
it' a miracle:

let's say, i do have a word .doc saved as .rtf with:
20pt, 18pt, 16pt headers,
text body is 14pt,
and some lines as notes, numbers etcpp
in 8pt
ALL defined by ms-word-styles.

the epub-output shows
correct TOC and formating for the headers,
text-body is OK too.

BUT the 8pts have the same size as the text-body...
<p class="calibre2"><span class="none">

the miracle is:
any 8pt-word in the 14pt-text body
or
any 8pt line ...
i styled by hand, is recognized and shown correctly in the epub!

i could do a RegEx-workaround with SIGIL,
but it doesn't explain why the calibre-converter doesn't recognize the small font in lines defined by styles.

now i did!

and got the same stylesheet.css, and the same .html as before.

but now the font-size sometimes is shown as pt instead of em before.
there is the same class (.none4) wich take place for words and sentences
i styled as smaller (8pt) on purpose. and only for them.

i mean, it's all the same. just the size relation changed a bit.
my 8pt sentences, who got their style from ms-word-styles are still in in 14pt.

thanks a lot for being patient.
as a newbee i'am a little bit slow in mind, sometimes!

your hint helped a lot.

but 'll stay with rtf conversion, simpler code, quicker conversion, quicker access to the rtf-file in case of needed corrections...
i've learned to tweak the code with sigil, playing around with the classes...
juggling with regex...

now, everything's fine!

Exclamation to whom it may concern / toc-workarounds calibre+sigil

after converting from .rtf and exploding the .epub i found:

a very tiny toc.ncx, no wonder why there is nearly no ToC in Calibre-viewer.

BUT...

after opening in SIGIL, there is a complete ToC... suspicious.
that means, the SIGIL HTMLtidy has done the job?
yes!

and no?
looking in the exploded .epub shows: the html-code is correct, heading-tags are set, but just... the toc.ncx isn't.
shure, after saving with SIGIL the new toc.ncx is saved too.
the Calibre viewer will show.

am i right?
please, kovidgoyal, have a look! it's a lot of juggling.

....
so, my very first statement isn't correct in all details.

by the way, shall i open a new thread for this, or/and post it in the calibre forum too?

Wink whow!

it seems that you're waiting to answer (silly) questions, ya so quick!

ok, ok, i'm a self taught/autodidact. ever was.
i'm a dropout (from university) several times, different majors.
too lame, no quick responses to my questions, to many manuals.

but i understand... rtfm. (read the fucking manual)
i like trial and error, and serendipity.

i hope i don't bother,
there are a lot of ways to Rome.

thanks.

Question ruled line

yes, i did rtfm.

"You can have it insert a ruled line instead of, or in addition to the page break." ...
if i choose both or ruled line, what does the ruled line means?

if i put in (where?) a ruled line, would match my very first question.
a specific line every chapterbreak, GREAT!
