Any clues as to what would cause this errror?

Hi,
Thanks for responding. Unfortunately it still fails in conversion at the same point.

I ended up converting the text file to html using markdown (ubuntu 11.10 64bit). The resulting html file converted to epub & mobi without issue.
I would still be interested to know why the calibre markdown converter choked on the file if anyone has any clues.

Interesting! Can you make a small markdown text document which shows the problem and attach it to this thread?

I have attached the file which causes the error. As it is a copyright work I have modified the text somewhat, but the error still occurs for me.

I get no errors when I convert this test file.

On the [TXT Input] settings I have:

Paragraph Style: off
Formatting Style: markdown

Running calibre 0.8.32 on Windows 7 (64-bit)
