Hyphenation - again..

Hi,

I'm aware there is 100th of threads on Hyphenation - but I didn't find an answer for my question, don't beat me up, please :-)

- I'm using a kindle touch. Weak / no hyphenation - I'm totally fine with that. Most books I put on via USB just don't do hyphenation, that's fair, no complains.

- Some books (also mobi format) do hyphenation in a very strange way:
Quote:
This is stan
ge hyphena
tion
- When I scale the font it might look like
Quote:
This is stang
e hyphenatio
n
I've re-created the mobi from epub or htmlz with various calibre options - no avail.
I removed "<p class=" and "<span class= " from the htmlz and did another convert to mobi. No change.

So I guess there are two questions:
A) Can someone confirm there is a setting for this in mobi? Must be as two mobi books behave different?
B) Any way to change the behavior manually / w. Calibre / w. another tool?

Thanks a lot for reading so far!

I see NO Hyphenation.

this is Hyphenation
Code:
This is stan-
ge hyphena-
tion
I see multiple (visually partial) paragraphs

Try lowering the 'Unwrap factor' a small amount (at a time) when doing the conversion.
