Keep getting Chapter,Date,Time stamps
So I am very new to Calibre and to Kindle itself, we are talking just a couple of hours, so I apologize in advance if the problem I am facing is very obvious and very amateur-ish.
So I tried converting a PDF formatted book into .MOBI. The conversion went not so greatly, I keep getting these at the end of each page and other times just in random places...
(This was in the acknowledgment section of the book)
Chapter = ack
Date: August 26, 2009
Time: 9:11 am
(For example this was stamped at the end of each page in chapter 1)
Chapter = c01
Date: July 8, 2009
Time: 6:35 pm
Can anyone please help me understand why I am getting these and how I can remove it please?
Again I apologize in advance if this is a very stupid question, as I said I am very very new to all this.

is going to a tricky 'footer' removal setting <- Hint
I prefer to use Sigil after the basic convert and see what my REGEX finds before letting it replace YMMV

I asked kind of the same question in another thread and it seems there are only two ways: the search & replace way (either in calibre or a regex-able text editor) and the cropping-with-Adobe-Acrobat way.
If you try to crop your pdf with anything else (as I recently discovered), it will "hide" the header and/or footer but the actual text will still be in the file and show after conversion.
