If this is in the wrong place, sorry about that, and would some kind moderator please move it to the correct place?

I've run into an odd glitch with ePubs downloaded from here and from Project Gutenberg (I'll also notify them).

I'll download my ePub, bring it into Calibre, then it won't import to iTunes, complaining about a lack of something called "isoformat" (I'm very much a newbie to ePub/Calibre, so have no clue what that is). I worked around it by running the file(s) through Calibre's conversion process, going from ePub to ePub (to my surprise, Calibre very docilely did so instead of asking me if I was out of my mind, since source and destination formats were the same).

I'm not sure whether this is a bug in Calibre, a file issue, or just "normal".

that's a bug in calibre, will be fixed in next release. You can work around the problem for the moment by converting from wpub to epub

wpub? The affected files, from both sources, at least claimed to be ePub. (Novice to this type of file/software here, but fairly competent with computers in general.)

Wasn't trying to hassle you, just confused (for all I knew, there really was such a thing as wpub :)).

One of the virtues of Calibre is how accessible and responsive the author is when a user has questions. :)
