Definitely second Toxaris' recommendation to use FlightCrew to validate your EPUB - it produces much clearer, easier to understand messages. However, just a brief pointer to what these error messages are saying - they are referring to specific files inside the EPUB file:

On line 7 of the content.opf file, there's an element with the attribute "file-as", but that attribute isn't valid according to the OPF specification referenced at http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf

On line 5 of the file index_split_000.html there's an HTML element which isn't closed properly. Being so early in the file, there's a good likelihood it's one of the elements in the HEAD section, so probably one of those that needs a closing slash / before the closing angle bracket >. A similar issue is flagged up on line 5 of all the other HTML files inside the EPUB file.

On line 14 of the file titlepage.xhtml, there's an element which contains the attribute "preserveAspectRatio", but the value given for that attribute is not a recognised or valid value. This attribute usually appears in an SVG element wrapped around an image. The most likely value that is wanted here is:
preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMin meet"
and as Jellby points out, is case sensitive. See http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/coords.html...RatioAttribute for more details about this attribute and allowed values.
