Best practices to create mobi

Hi All,

Can anyone advise on the best way (or at least pros and cons or each of getting my book formatted as a mobi.

I have 1.9. When I compile to mobi it works but some of the formatting is odd. For example indents are set a one space instead of the usual amount. Font embedding (which I had used for title headings) doesn’t work. A few other things.

A program called sigil was suggested, but it looks like this only works with epub files, so I would need to first convert mobi to epub. Or compile to epub and then use sigil. Or compile to rtf and use amazon’s tool to create the mobi? Or it has been suggested that 3.0 has a better compiler?

Any comments or suggestions? How do you all create your final masterworks?

Thanks in advance!
I
