Help with text justification

I have an lrf file and for some reason all of the text in the book is centered, instead of being left & right justified.

I want to justify the text, so I've tried to convert it to other formats (MOBI, EPUB) with the justify command specified in the CSS but the output always has the text centered. This is a non-DRM'd file.

Anyone have any advice on how to fix this? I've made sure the "No text justification" box is UNCHECKED in the look & feel section.

Thanks for any thoughts.

I have noticed this with the News Fetch from The Jerusalem Post. The other news fetched (the few that I have tried) have had no problems, being correctly justified.

your input document is probably specifying a justification. You'll have to edit it to remove that before converting

Ok, thanks. For some reason I thought the CSS commands specified in the conversion GUI overrode those in the source document.

it depends, CSS rules have a complicated priority inheritance structure.
