.lit or .mobi to epub for ipad loose format

Hello! This is my first time here. I have a diccionary in .mobi that has a beautiful format, as I can see it in MS Reader. But when I convert the file to epub with Calibre and see it in the ibook from my ipad, looses all format of the original and I only see the text, without bolds, indents, index, paragrafhs, etc. of the original file.
Sorry my poor english, I read a lot in the forum but I can´t find an answer.
Thanks!!

Most likely it's one of the old MS Reader Langenscheidt dictionaries that someone has converted from LIT to MOBI.

If that's the case, you could re-download the original .lit files, unpack them with ConvertLIT 1.8 and then convert them with Calibre to .epub files. However, you won't be able to use them as a lookup dictionary.

It'd be better to use the .mobi versions with the Kindle for iPad app.

You don't need to use ConvertLIT to go from MS Reader to ePub. Just use Calibre.

Theoretically, yes, but Calibre failed to convert some of the MS dictionary files even though they're not DRM'ed.
