Is there a way to strip drop caps?

I have some books which have drop caps at the start of the chapter, and I can't get them to display properly on my Kobo. I have tried reconverting them to epub and it helped a little (they no longer are giant-sized) but they still are messing up the books. Is there a way to easily fix this?

Hack the CSS with TweakEPUB. Just comment out the /* .old_class { stuff} */

then find the basic paragraph style and add the old class name

.normal, .old_class {...


That leaves a hint of the hack and easily reversed as the coding is still in place, just not acted upon differently

if you don't plan to ever reverse the code do as I do. look in stylesheet.css file for something like this
.dropcap {
blah
blah
blah
}
& delete everything between the curly brackets...
in most cases the annoying style is helpfully called dropcap or dropcaps, but if not you just have to work a little harder to find & tweak it.
