Conversion from RTF to Mobi problem

Hi, I am a new great admirer of Calibre. Today for the first time I converted from RTF to Mobi. While text formatting was great in every other respect, EVERY output line shows underlined when read, even where the original has NO underlines.
Any suggestions?
Many thanks
George

You could try 2 things:

1. Open RTF in your text processor (MS WORD, OpenOffice, LibreOffice) and save it as ODT. Then convert in calibre.
2. Add extra css in convert menu ("Look&Feel tab):
Code:
*{text-decoration: none;}

Thank you Rafalk, unfortunately option 1 is not available to me as I only have MS Word reader and it cannot save.
Option 2 unfortunately did not work for me.
Cheers

RafalK thank you so much it worked like a charm and I was going crazy.
I have some illustrations in my book and the process stuck them all up front instead of where I had them placed. Should I just delete them all or is there any way to anchor them?

You should disable floating of images and everything should be fine.

You can download one of free alternatives, for example LibreOffice http://www.libreoffice.org/ and use it to save file as ODT.
