Open Office Conversion Woes Please Help?

Okay. I've been wrestling with this for two days, it should not be this hard!

Using Open Office on my Mac, I have followed instructions at Kinworm and MTE to make an HTML file for Calibre to convert to a Mobi.

The headers are as suggested.
Pictures inserted as suggested.
Chapters have hard breaks at the end.
Margins were set at 4x7.

Saved as HTML.

Yet every time I convert, the text simply wanders off into the distance, indents are only on the first paragraph of a chapter, the page breaks are there, but do nothing, the pages that are supposed to be separated mush together and look awful. Headers split and wander.

What am I doing wrong?
