Too Much Italics.....

I'm converting a PDF to HTMLZ (yes... I know... I know... its a mess) but something is happening I don't understand. When I opened the converted file, the last 25 pages were all in italics. When I figured out exactly where the problem started, I looked around in the original files.

In Calibre, when I pull up the Regex window and look at the correct point, there IS a </i> where the problem is. So at least Calibre did convert to html correctly.

Yet, in the resulting HTMLZ file, that specific </i> is missing??????

This was a simple fix... just inserting the </i>... but what happened???

I would consider this a bug IF:
as you said, there was only one missing closing </i> AND
The Body was not a Bold style ( using inverted logic: Bold unless I say otherwise).

I would never expect any local style done inside a Paragraph/Div container to persist past the closing </p> or </div>

This was reported a few months back, but that reporter never posted an example book. Attach your problem book to this bug and I'll take a look at it.
