Because of the radical changes in how the Converter's "brain" operates in versions 0.5.x as opposed to versions 0.2.x, some previously recognized formats were no longer recognized. Version 0.5.5 corrects that.

Disappointingly, nobody reported this problem, I happened to stumble upon it myself, while using the extension as any other user. Please be more forward about reporting bugs, I can't discover them all myself!

internal Smarter match comparisons n/a Internally, the Converter tries to match several stylistic formats against the text to be converted (eight in this version), and then checks which is the best macth (it only converts that one, and repeats the process for full page conversions). The format comparison has been improved in this version, and that should result in more reliable conversions overall.
improvement Minor performance optimization n/a Full page conversions have been tuned a bit, and they should now perform marginally better.
