Test Driving Smashwords Uploads

Hey all, is there a way to "test drive" an upload at Smashwords before actually uploading it? I know they have the style guide, but I'm trying to figure out if there's something, maybe even similar to the epub check, that would look over the document, suggest changes, and even possibly allow you to make them on the fly. I'm mostly looking for something that'll make the issues (if there are any) jump out right away. I ask because I was loading a file today and they came up with this long list of things my book might have wrong with it. There wasn't anything actually wrong, but I figure that it's better safe than sorry. I know I've had others look over my files (and came back with flying colors) and I've been through the style guide, but again, anything automated that'll catch the majority of potential problems is a plus.

Also, it doesn't necessarily need to be located at Smashwords if a 3rd party has a working system.
