Help with ePub conversions

OK here is my issue.

I am using Calibre as my PC library. I am using iBooks on my iPad as my reader.

All of my EPUBs have been converted using Calibre. I have always converted using the out of the box settings with the following checked :

1) remove spacings between paragraphs
2) insert line between paragraphs
3) justify text
4) indent size is 0.0 em
5) Filter Style info tab - margins checked

I would say 90% of my epubs come out looking exactly how I want it. However this other 10% is my concern. In the view section in Calibre it looks different then my normal EPUBs (font or spacing between lines, font size, etc) and of course always comes out looking different on my iPad/iBooks.

Is there wa way I can find my setting on an EPUB that is formatted exactly how I want it and some how have it hard coded into my Calibre to do this to every EPUB I convert?

I am assuming that on the 10% that do not seem to format properly that there is some sort of embedded settings that override what Calibre would normally do in a conversion. Is this even a correct assumption?

After lots of google searches, etc I believe that the css may be the solution bit I am not sure so I am turning to the experts for help here

Thanks...

Moved post to its own thread in the Conversions forum. The previous thread was specific to the CSS used by calibre's internal viewer and not a dicussion about converting books.

The best solution is to load the ePub into Sigial and do the changes by hand.
