Problems with fixing PDF's converted to HTML (allignment, font)

Anybody know what the Calibre html code for centered text is? It didn't seem to carry over when I converted the PDF to epub. Now I'm editing the html code but not sure what to use. Also having problems with inserting empty lines to space out some parts of the text. Lastly, anybody know if there is a compilation of font code for Calibre? That didn't seem to carry over either.

First read the sticky post, Read this before Posting PDF Questions, for an explanation of limitations in converting PDF books.

Second, calibre is not an editing tool and as such this may not be the best forum to hold conversations on editing content. If you are editing in Sigil, then the Sigil sub-forum may be a better place for your editing questions, or since it's an ePub the ePub sub-forum might also have folks with the needed experience.

Good Luck.

Hi, I already gave an answer to how you can make a change in an epub file in this topic: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...45#post1753345 . As for where exactly to put the

, this is html/css knowledge. If you don't know html and css, you'd better learn some before editing files manually. http://www.w3schools.com is one good place to start.
