I have this novelmanuscript. Only text. Right now we'll forget about the page-break-problems :-)

Ok, when I export the Pages (4,3) document to ePub, it works in the validator ePub Checker. Everything is ok.

But when I add a picture as a coverpage as page 1, the validator sees an error:


"ERROR: /OPS/cover.xhtml(5,452): element div not allowed her, expected the element end-tag, text or element "a", "abbr", "acronym", "applet", "b", "bdo", "big", "br", "cite", "code", "del", "dfn" …" and several others


And the only thing I have done, is to insert the coverpic as page 1 in .jpg (have also tried TIFF with same negative result)


Though the validator notes an error, my epub-reader "calibre" reads the cover fine. But the error-report makes it impossible or difficult to place my eBook in certain eBook stores.


Anyone who understands that error message? Or even better: can tell me what to do?

    You have to have the image inline to work!

    More information on this link

    On the webpage you can find this link and download a template for an epub document.

    Maybe it is better you post in the forum Creating ePubs. Most of us answering here doesn't create e-pub documents.
