Calibre add a new line after every bullet in a list converting to mobi

Hi all

Every method I used to get converted HTML in Calibre to MOBI and sent to my Kindle ends with an odd issue.

The issue is that the bulleted lists, that looks great in any html editor I've tested, when passed to MOBI via Calibre, a new line after every bullet is added. I've tried the previous conversion to ePub via Sigil as well.

For instance,if i got this list:
  • First item
  • Second Item
  • Third Item

When passed to MOBI in Calibre it's transformed to this:

  • First item

  • Second Item

  • Third Item

No matter if I use Sigil to check the HTML or converting from OpenOffice to HTML or any other procedure software tool you can test. Calibre adds a new line after e very bullet.

any suggestion would be appreciated.

Use semantic amrkup for your bulleted list like this

<ul>
<li>,,,</li>
<li>...</li>
</ul>

ANd make sure it doesn't have extra CSS specifying breaks.block display style

That's what i've used. Semantic markup with <ul> and <li> tags.

No other CSS is in the HTML document.

just try with this code below and convert it to MOBI. You'll see what I mean.

Code:
<ul>
    <li>First</li>
    <li>Second</li>
    <li>Third</li>
</ul>
