Extra Page Breaks

Hi,

I'm very knew to this but I have searched the forums and can't find an answer. I am editing some epubs in Sigil then using calibre to convert to mobi. In epub they look spot on but when I convert to mobi I get some really annoying extra page breaks. I have turned everything off I can find and it looks fine in the output debug file but the extra page breaks remain.
I assume it is the output plugin doing it but there is no customize option on this plugin.

For example

<div class="s">
<p class="calibre2"><span class="none6">I</span><span class="none6">The Galleys of Mhurga</span></p>
</div>

<div class="s1">
<p class="calibre2"><span class="none1">Jostled

Will result in a page break between the "I" and "The" and after "Mhurga"
There is nothing in the stylesheet about pagebreaks.

Thanks if you can help.

This is a garbage (OCR) conversion (repetitive same spans)

Replace the Red with a missing space (assuming this was A roman Numeral and chapter title)
stylesheet
classes: s, s1 none1,none6, calibre2 come into play here

Thanks Ducks,

Actually after playing a bit the solution was even easier. Convert from epub to epub with page breaks turned off, then convert the result to mobi.
The code gets even messier but no extra breaks.

Hopefully next version of Sigil will make it easier for noobs like me.

Cheers
