View Full Version : date value not valid error message

10-15-2010, 02:35 PM
I keep getting the following error message when validating certain (not all) EPUB files:

"date value ' 2008-09-15 ' is not valid, YYYY[-MM[-DD]] expected"

According to the IDPF spec I believe the date value '2008-09-15' is properly formatted -- YYYY-MM-DD. Is this a bug in epubcheck, or can someone please tell me what I'm missing?
