CSS "vertical-align: 33%" NOT supported in ePub -> DocX Conversion

Bug Description

The correct behavior would be for a positive vertical-align to become a superscript and a negative vertical-align to become a subscript. A bandaid fix would be to ignore the vertical-align entirely and generate a .docx.

Currently the .docx fails to be generated and an error is displayed.

This has been replicated on multiple platforms, but I have a MacBook Pro with Calibre 2.33.0 running 10.10.4. You can reach me at <email address hidden> if you need additional information.

From the error log:
