We recently submitted an epub to the Apple iBookstore, and not surprisingly it was "returned for re-grooving."
The stated reason for rejection was
- There are no Table of Contents entries passed Chapter Six. Please inclulde the rest of the Chapters in the Table of Contents. Thank you.
However, the interesting thing is that the epub DOES have a complete Table of Contents. All of the chapter entries are displayed properly in ADE, Calibre's ebook-viewer, and the Firefox epub add-in. The book passes epubcheck 1.2 as well as Flight Crew.
However, the TOC is a 2-level nested structure. And, coincidentally the first six chapters mentioned in the quote are all sub-entries under the first main entry.
So, does anyone know whether for some reason iBooks will not support nested TOCs, or has our friend from Cupertino been smokin' some more of them funny cigarettes?
BTW I searched MR and consulted Elizabeth Castro's book but found nothing relevant.
Thanks in advance!
