Need some help with a failed conversion

I'm having trouble converting an edited epub to mobi. I've done this almost daily for over a year now and have rarely had a conversion fail so I'm not really sure what the error log is telling me. I'll attach it to this post. Those of you somewhat familiar with Calibre conversion error logs, please look this over and see if anything stands out.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone may be able to provide.

Sincerely,
- Byron Followell

Maybe but I've used versions six months old and never really had a problem. I guess there's a first time for everything though. I just saved the file right before trying the conversion though so I know it isn't read-only. I'll download the latest version and try again.

I definitely have some problems somewhere. I downloaded v0.8.34 and it did convert without failing this time but, when I pull the mobi into Kindle Previewer, it's like none of the css formatting is making it over through the conversion. When I look at the original epub on ADE though, it displays with no problems and ADE is very finicky about css issues.

I'll keep digging and post back whatever I find.

Go to the MR Mobi forum. Do not pass Go

You need to spend some quality time reading (stickies there)what Mobi can('t) do.

Thanks but this isn't a "what mobi can or can't do" issue. Like I said, I've been doing this for well over a year. I'm not doing anything strange, abnormal or weird. This is just very, very basic stuff here. Nothing that should cause the problems I'm seeing. I'm sure it's something simple like having missing semi colon in my css or something. I'll post here after I figure it out.

Thanks kovidgoyal.

I have no idea what the problem was as everything looked fine but I cut & pasted and may've messed something up. Since the namespace isn't technically required, I just removed it and everything worked fine.

Thanks again for your help.
