Question lack of color in conversion from EPUB to AWZ3

I like to read an e-book using light grey for the background and black for the foreground. Sometimes, I will use a medium blue for text instead of Black. It does present an easier on the eyes reading experience for myself.

This is a hobby for me. I use windows 7 with Sigil and Calibre and my Kindle.

I notice that in Calibre viewer of the awz3 file, my specified colors only show up for the cover screen. The rest of the screens are black on white. Yet, when I use ADE to read the epub file, the colors are correct.

When I view the awz3 file on my Kindle, the colors are to my specification. That is, Black text on a light grey background.

This leaves me to believe that the conversion process from epub to awz3 is not working. Should I be setting some options in Calibre? Sometimes, I like to use the viewer to check my changes.
