Question HTML to EPUB no word-wrap on some pages/missing pages of text



Trying to convert a filtered HTML(originally was a .docx content of which was copy-pasted from these series, the print friendly version: http://www.fool.com/teens/teens05.htm) file to EPUB with Calibre's convert feature, and read it on my reader.

For some reason, the very first page has no word-wrap(so text goes off the screen) and the second page is actually content that's 9 pages later and it looks fine there.

My reader shows this for page numbers at the bottom:
On the first page with text(when ebook open for the first time and you flip over from book cover which is just a custom PNG image) it says Page 2-9 of 70

On the second page(when you flip over again) it says Page 9 of 70
This happens a few times later around Page 25-30 of 70, and a couple more, and there's just no text at all sometimes at those page areas.

First time I tried to convert DOCX straight to EPUB, but tables were not preserved. After some more research a suggestion to save DOCX as filtered HTML and then convert to EPUB worked - the tables displayed properly.

Just want to be able to covert interesting articles from the Internet to EPUB so I can read them on the reader. Don't like reading off the computer screen.

The EPUB that you uploaded looks all right to me... except that every line from the original article seems to have become its own paragraph.

It looks like it was converted from PDF.

Currently copy-pasted the whole thing into a .txt and fixing formatting. Maybe this will solve the problem.

Found the problem in Word. Issue was that some copied parts of article series had all of its textual content inside a big table which was wider than normal page size. Therefore text got cutoff on the reader. Selecting the tables and converting them to text made content fit the page size.

The text is not big - you can edit it in calibre or sigil.
