Kindle font problem with EPUB to mobi conversion

I converted an EPUB using KindleGen. My <p></p> is defined as {font-style:normal}.

However, Kindle is having problems with typeface display.
If I go to "Typeface" and select:
-"regular" (which should show a serif font) I get sans-serif (BAD)
-"condensed" it shows serif condensed (OK)
-"sans-serif" it shows sans-serif (OK)

So "regular" and "sans serif" both show the same font: sans serif.
With "regular" it should show serif, but it doesn't.

Other books on my Kindle don't have this problem.

Has anyone encountered this issue before?

You don't actually need do define a font-style unless it's other then normal. Try removing all instances of font-style: normal and see what happens.
