How can I cure this error in mobi to epub conversion?

I have some drm free mobi books from amazon. They read perfectly in the kindle for PC and mobireader, but when I convert them to epub in calibre for my sony ereader they lose some formatting when read in ADE. Typically street names are identified and put into italics and new paragraphs created before and after. This has happened on two of 17 books I have converted recently.

I want to avoid editing them in sigil, can anyone suggest a setting in Calibre that could sort it out?

Its my first post with a calibre enquiry so I hope I am not missing something obvious.

I corrected it by doing a search in Sigil for the address class which created the error.

This is an example of the code.

================

I took the</span></p>

<address class="calibre5">
<span face="Times New Roman">George Washington Parkway</span>
</address>

<p><span face="Times New Roman">, heading toward the Helms compound north of</span> <span face="Times New Roman">Georgetown</span> <span face="Times New Roman">.<span>&nbsp;</span> Traffic was thick.<span>&nbsp;</span> National Public Radio seeped through the stereo speakers, the announcer’s velvety tones like an antidote to road rage.</span></p>

============

The original text as a mobi looks like normal text, but in calibre it is transformed into <address class="calibre5">, with line break before and after created. I did a search and replace which cured the problem in this ebook.

Could anyone look at the original to see if there is something in the mobi coding? I could upload the mobi file as a private attachment.
