Exclamation iBooks does NOT LIKE  

Because of a typographical error on Adobe's part, when a book is exported and distributed to Apple an error code comes up saying it doesn't like   or ­ and Apple will send the offending title back for corrections.

There is an extra space in the DTD:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1[EXTRA SPACE IS HERE]//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
which causes this issue.

Remove the space in any/all HTML files in your book and iBooks will find no issue with your non-breaking spaces and your discretionary hyphens.

Thanks, Adobe, for once again screwing up a teeeeeeeeeeny thing that causes an entire book to have an issue every time. Let's hope there is the possibility of a patch for this..
