Hi all,
I just uploaded an ebook to Smashwords and failed ePubcheck. Ran the validation and I got this:

ERROR: the-chasm (1).epub: The file tmp_239d64709504b96dd81c8edc6e65c178_xCSHbz_html_3 90c33fd.png does not appear to be of type image/png
ERROR: the-chasm (1).epub: The file tmp_239d64709504b96dd81c8edc6e65c178_xCSHbz_html_m 62b111ca.png does not appear to be of type image/png
Check finished with warnings or errors!

I've gotten this repeatedly, even before I included the cover image in the word doc. Anybody understand what this means? I didn't upload any .png files and nothing with this file name, so I don't know where it's coming from.

thanks!

I need help too. I've gotten 2 errors uploading to EPub and I don't know what to do. Here they are: ERROR: magic-by-moonlight.epub/tmp_8f35b4464be7fb148563736a1c6c79c2_HmADUk.ch.fix ed.fc.tidied.stylehacked.xfixed_split_013.html(21) : text not allowed here; expected the element end-tag or element "address", "blockquote", "del", "div", "dl", "h1", "h2", "h3", "h4", "h5", "h6", "hr", "ins", "noscript", "ns:svg", "ol", "p", "pre", "script", "table" or "ul" (with xmlns:ns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg")

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The xhtml in that file is mangled and the tags have not been formed properly.

The answer, in both cases, is to open the ePub in Sigil and take a look at the offending element. I would also suggest both of you search for a different solution to creating epubs, since any workflow that spits out files named "tmp_239d64709504b96dd81c8edc6e65c178_xCSHbz_html_m 62b111ca.png" or "tmp_8f35b4464be7fb148563736a1c6c79c2_HmADUk.ch.fix ed.fc.tidied.stylehacked.xfixed_split_013.html" is a disaster waiting to happen.

That's Smashword's meatgrinder for you. And from the problems I read about it, it is indeed a disaster.
