Hm. But aside from chapter detection, why do blank line spaces disappear? Why don't they get converted to something like html <br><br> tags?
I had the same problem when I used Mobi Creator to make .prc files from html source files. And when I when I used Framemaker to make tagged PDF files from Word docs. Never did reliably solve the problem.
