I have tried using Kindlegen as well, it retains the underline on the links just like Calibre (unless I am missing something).

I reviewed the documentation on the Mobipocket file format, and apparently <mbp:nu> is supposed to remove underlines, independent of what program is used to generate the MOBI file--it is a file spec, after all. But no dice.

Once again, I am interested if anyone has managed to use <mbp:nu> or any other technique to accomplish underline removal on hyperlinks, and I would be very interested in sample code.

Also, if any random good soul happens to have a Kindle 1 and would be able to test the zero-width space method on their Kindle 1, I would appreciate it. I have access to Kindle 2, 3, Touch and Fire, but no Kindle 1...even the conversion company I'm using doesn't have one. I suppose it's not that big a deal since the first iteration doesn't exactly have the preponderance of possession percentage, but it doesn't pain me to be prepared. (Ehe... )
