HD+ / Sideloaded eBooks have space between paragraphs

Status: Open
I sideloaded an HTML file recently that I had converted into EPUB format with Calibre and there was now a space between each paragraph. If I turn on Publisher Default the space disappears. I haven't sideloaded any converted eBooks since the 2.1 update so I can't say exactly when this change occurred. All of the hundreds of converted eBooks I had sideloaded prior to 2.1 are still fine - none of them have a space between each paragraph. In fact if I sideload an eBook identical to one sideloaded previously it now has a space and the original (identical) does not. This behavior is identical to what browsers do with the original HTML, i.e. they put a space between each paragraph. They also don't indent but thankfully the Nook does (for now anyway). This may appear trivial but once Publisher Default is turned on one can't change ANYTHING. Not background color, font, etc. Oh - and I'm not a pirate. There ARE free eBooks out there but they need edited and converted. Gutenberg is one such site.

I am experiencing the exact same thing and it all leads back to the 1.20 update.  I thought I was the only one having this issue.  I have uninstalled Calibre and reloaded, but still occurs.  All books sideloaded through Calibre prior to the 1.20 update have no issue.  Very confusing.  Have not seen anything on any Calibre chat boards, so hopefully someone here can offer a solution.

The only thing I've been able to do to fix this is, in Calibre while converting, Look & Feel->Filter Style Information check ALL the boxes Fonts/margins/padding/floats/color This gets rid of the space between paragraphs on the Nook.
