Similarly never more than one space, never tabs and never a space at the start of a line or the end. Use paragraph styles etc.

I actually search and delete them before a final save.
How about page breaks (ctrl+return) then? Would they create a problem in conversion to EPUB?

Again; you can actually associate a break after with a paragraoh style.

What you need to do is to get away from the idea of formatting the text with special attributes, and instead just let the text be the content. The layout of the content should be liunked to the styles associated with the text.

Thank you all for having patience with an amateur. I am already realizing how tedious some of my questions must seem to you.

No worries. There are some other sub forums here that are really intended for help with creating ebooks. There are both one called "Workshop" for ebooks in general, and another more intended for ePub formats, logically enough called "ePub".
