words with "ll" convert to "l "

I'm converting a fan fiction novel that is written in .pdf *sigh* to epub and every time I convert it, no matter what Calibre settings I use (even checking/unchecking "keep ligatures"), every word with double L in it has the second L replaced with a space.

I have a Kindle, but I'm converting from pdf to epub so I can clean it up before sending to mobi. When I open the epub in Sigil, I notice this and it's everywhere.

Can someone help me out?

since it is a free fanfic, here is a link to the pdf I'm downloading: http://www.speedbumpstudios.com/chapters/JPHEC.pdf

Try reading this thread:

Per Kovid:
This is not going to be fixed until the new calibre pdf engine is ready. It is a bug in the poppler pdftohtml program calibre uses. The new pdf engine has a replacement for pdftohtml that I wrote that fixes this issue, but until it is ready, there is no fix.

Along with the reading Starson17 pointed you to check out the sticky post on PDF conversions.

best short term work-around is to use a different conversion program as per the linked threads. I had this issue a while back & found that most other programs work ok with the ll issue
