How do I maintain formatting when converting to lrf?

I convert a lot of ebooks from rtf to lrf and I've recently formatted a large number of rtf ebooks very laboriously. When I try to convert these to lrf using calibre the formatting is not retained. For example I prefer to put conversations on separate lines, so one character speaks, then another speaks on the next line but calibre just runs these together. Is there anyway to retain this formatting or am I wasting my time?

RTF is not the best of formats to start with. Try exporting the file to HTML instead in word or whatever program you're using to edit the RTF

Okay, thanks. Will converting from HTML to lrf work better?

It worked perfectly. Thanks again.
