split words at end of line

I'm using Calibre to convert an Epub (generated by MAc pages) to Mobi . Viewing on the Kindle is OK except that at some point it starts wrapping in the middle of a word.
A forum member suggested looking at the CSS using Sigil. What should I be looking for? (My CSS knowledge is minimal).

For example, the word "skills" at the end of a sentence gets split:

Just like in any game, the foundational sk
ills take practice.

This occurs using any font size on the Kindle.

The suggestion to remove the following CSS code (using Sibil) seems to fix the problem:
<style type="text/css">
/*<![CDATA[*/

div.sgc-2 {white-spacere-wrap}
br.sgc-1 {clear:both;}
/*]]>*/
</style>
