kindlegen epub to mobi - lists are incorrectly displayed

If I convert epub to mobi lists (<ul> <li> hello </li> </ul> are incorrectly displayed. The dots starts in one line and the description text in another.

Screenshot of the incorrect result:



I don't know how to solve this. I tried to modify the CSS and to change the HTML code but nothing I tried made a difference.

I used kindlegen and Calibre for the conversion but the result is always the same.

Any information pointer on how to solve this would be great.

Can you please post a sample ePub that shows your issue so someone can take a look?

@JSWolf Thanks for the fast reply.

I placed an example epub here:

And the resulting mobi here:

I think it's the <p> tag that is nested in the <li> tag. It's not really necessary.

Changing the code from:
Code:
<ul class="itemizedlist">

  <li class="listitem">
    <p>Item1</p>
  </li>

  <li class="listitem">
    <p>Item2</p>
  </li>

  <li class="listitem">
    <p>Item3</p>
  </li>

  <li class="listitem">
    <p>Item4</p>
  </li>

</ul>
To:
Code:
<ul class="itemizedlist">

  <li class="listitem">Item1</li>

  <li class="listitem">Item2</li>

  <li class="listitem">Item3</li>

  <li class="listitem">Item4</li>

</ul>
Seems to work as expected in both the epub and the resulting mobi.

@DiapDealer: Thank you very much. After removing the <p> </p> tags the output looks great.

Thank you again.
