When I upload a PDF at Amazon, the file that I preview looks terrible. The dialogue is sometimes indented and sometimes not. The new chapters appear in the beginning of a page and the drop caps don't transfer accurately.

Is there anything I can do?

Is there a free program to convert ebooks to files that you can edit without knowing HTML code?

Please help if you can,

Thanks,

You probably need to read the guides at Amazon. Like this one: http://forums.digitaltextplatform.com/dtpforums/kbcategory.jspa?categoryID=3

Under the DTP Formatting Quick Start Guide (http://forums.digitaltextplatform.com/dtpforums/entry!default.jspa?categoryID=9&externalID=21&fromSearchPage=true) you're told .pdf is not an ideal format. Have you tried a .doc file?
