Iam are very disappointed with new Pages update (4.3). After new Pages update, when i want to export a book into epub, and upload book in iBookstore iTunes Producer cancels it, because of ERROR: /OPS/cover.xhtml(5,458): element "div" not allowed here; expected the element end-tag, text or element "a", "abbr", "acronym", "applet", "b", "bdo", "big", "br", "cite", "code", "del", "dfn", "em", "i", "iframe", "img", "ins", "kbd", "map", "noscript", "ns:svg", "object", "q", "samp", "script", "small", "span", "strong", "sub", "sup", "tt" or "var" (with xmlns:ns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"). Previously i did not have any problems with uploading the epubs produced in Pages (4.2). I checked our epubs using epubchecker and i  think, that new Pages (4.3) makes incorrect HTML elements in epubs, which i want to export.

Please, send me some feedback and Apple - fix this problem.!

You can fix this manually if you know how to edit an epub (unzip, edit, then rezip).  Change all the "div" tags surrpounding the images to "span" tags.  This will make it pass validation and still look the same.  Of course, this is a PIA work around.  Hope someone from Apple address this soon.

    To tell Apple about this (rather than just other users in the forums), you need to use

    There is a very high probability that you won't hear from Apple.

     

    Have you tried creating your content in Pages v4.3 and transferring it into iBooks Author 2.0. Let the latter export your epub, which may be a newer epub standard than what Pages may incorporate. See if this epub satisfies the iBookstore iTunes Producer file requirements.

    iBooks Author can't produce .epub, only a special .ibooks format that can't be read on any device other than an iPad.  But should certainly satisfy the ibookstore.

    This not a problem with iTunes Producer. This is Pages problem because Pages export create epub matadata. We try  same book layout export to epub from Pages v4.2 and Pages v 4.3, and epub created with Pages4.2 have any errors, epub created with Pages4.3 have many errors. All errors are about pictures.

    I remember Fruhulda mentioning a 11MB cap per section on images from an Apple KB on that subject. Coincidentally, are you exceeding this limitation now in Pages v4.3?
