Actually, I discovered a much easier and cleaner way to fix all the blockquote issues. Since Calibre had converted the blockquote into a style, I just replaced every "blockquote" with "p" (leaving in the calibre style reference) and that looks like it may have done the trick.

Also, <span> did not work inside the blockquotes for italics. I think I am just going to drop the italics from any blockquotes and call it a day.
You really need to learn the HTML-CSS basics. (those apply to epub)

Not a 'naked' span for Italics. A Span with a style (<span class="<selector name here>" ) that contains font-style:italic;
eg (very basic usage)
Code:
.calibre3 {
  font-style: italic;
}
The same with a Blockquote. If it has a class=, then that selector, fine tunes /overrides the default. So calibre8 is not detrimental in itself, just unnecessary in some cases (where the device HAS reasonable defaults).

Agreed! I mistakenly thought Calibre took care of all of that, so that if the HTML worked, it would convert it seamlessly. Now I know better!

Right - I had tried <span class="calibre6"> (which is what it used for the original emphasis), but still got the error.

Look for a subtle error. like a ; where a : should be

Or a tag nesting is wrong

<span class="foo">Make <b>bold</span></b>

Load the HTML in calibre. Convert it to text. Load the text in Word and add the styles. Then save as docx and convert to ePub in calibre.

Are you sure that's correct? Is any of that text supposed to be offset?

As long as the p has a suitable class it can always replace blockquote.
