I converted a Validated XHTML file to epub using Calibre. When Validating using the web site http://validator.idpf.org/application/validate - the following problem was returned:type/ WARNING file/ The Fourteenth Day Play_split_000.html line/ -1 position/ -1 message/ Filename contains spaces. Consider changing filename such that URI escaping is not necessary! - I get about 47 of these, one for each page break/chapter. I have no idea what this means or how to fix it. Can Anyone help?

First: it is a warning, not an error. You might ignore it, but fixing it is recommended.

Second: read the error message:


Filename contains spaces.


Your file names contain white spaces, indeed.

Third: read the suggestion:


Consider changing filename such that URI escaping is not necessary!


Together with the previous message, it suggests you to remove white spaces from the file names. For the reason, googling "URI escaping" will point you to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percent-encoding
