This is a problem with finding a place in the html to split the html into bite size chunks so that when converted to ePub the internal html chunks won't choke the reader. Typically the chunks have to be less than 300k. By default calibre shoots for less than 260k.

You can run the conversion with a directory in the debug area. This will produce, in the directory indicated, the html at various points in the process.

Open up the first (input directory?) html in Sigil then insert chapter breaks to split up the html. Then save the file as a Epub. I then take and run this epub through a epub to epub conversion in calibre to add in the cover, book jacket and get the font size, indents and spacing the way I like it.

If you try this you can further inquire in the Sigil forum.
