Just a side-note... I'd be interested in the reverse of this idea as well: finding orphaned classes assigned to elements in the xhtml that aren't represented in the stylesheet.
I guess I'm just lucky. Calibre has never screwed up any of my epubs, although I keep my original just in case. Of course I don't do anything more complicated than a table (which is pretty complicated for me). No linked footnotes or such.

Actually it kinda does do the reverse. The typos I was talking about are misspelled labels (classes?) that will cause Calibre to create a label for me. Since Calibre always uses "calibreXX" as labels and the output is in alphabetical order they are easy to spot and fix (all of my labels are descriptive). When I go to the label created by Calibre I normally find that it has replaced something like class="txet" instead of "text".
