My epub contains several areas of unwanted whitespace / gaps that appear as if a chapter has finished but when you turn the page, the chapter continues.
I have used Calibre and Sigil and have confirmed there is no coding that would cause these gaps, no page breaks or section breaks. I've used this same original word doc on Amazon to create a Kindle book and it's perfect.
If there are no gaps in the source code, or when saving as a web page, filtered, how could the Pubit conversion created this?
Also - this epub doesn't pass Validation. When imported into Calibre > look and feel > remove spacing between paragraphs, it then passes the Validation, however, the gaps are not removed by Calibre.
Help is appreciated.

Hmmm, not quite sure why it's not passing validation... without actually seeing your file, I would be guessing as to the actual problem. And using word 97-2003 seems to play nicer with pubit in the end, try saving your document that way first then start over with formatting.
Hope this helps :/

I don't have a definitive answer, but in doing epub, I notice that e-book devices appear to start new pages when they have very long paragraphs coming up. I've rectified the problem by breaking up very long paragraphs. This is not a science, but it has "worked" somewhat for me.

Try changing widows to be 0 and orphans to be 0. That is, if you have a css stylesheet, and , say, a "basic" paragraph, make it say:
This seems to help a lot; I have the same problem if orphans are set to something more normal like 2.

For one, no double spacing except when beginning a new chapter or section.
In Word -- at top....Where it says normal. Right click...then Left click Modify ...Left click format, then paragraph....Then check box that says "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style." This might help.
