Problem with epub to mobi? Everything is monospace

I'm trying to convert a book from epub to mobi, but in the kindle all the fonts are monospace. In my epub, I have a CSS body declaration like this:

Code:
body
    {
    font-family: Georgia, Garamond, serif, sanserif, monospace;
    }
As far as I can tell, this is perfectly valid. However, Calibre wraps <tt> tags (that's what I see in the Inspector), so I only get monospace fonts. If I instead use:

Code:
body
    {
    font-family: Georgia, Garamond, serif;
    }
The mobi output is correct.

So I would like to ask you whether this is a bug or if maybe I'm doing something wrong (my bet is that I'm doing something wrong).

I don't know where the <tt> tags came from but the correct css for generic sans-serif is sans-serif not sanserif. Might this be the problem?
