Question Struggling with InDesign CS5 to EPub conversion

Hi all. I'm a print designer trying to learn ePub production. I'm new to this forum and after searching around could not find the info I'm looking for.

I have a client who has provided me with an InDesign CS5 file that she wants converted and uploaded to Barnes&Noble. I followed the InDesign CS5 to EPub video tutorial on Lynda.com but am still having problems.

For one thing, the chapter breaks do not work when I apply TOC styles to the InDesign document. So now I'm setting up a book file with each chapter of the book as a separate file. Now the chapter breaks work but the chapter titles follow my file names exactly. Is it okay to have word spaces in the file names?

Additionally, I used a character style to apply italic formatting but the italic shows up in a very small pt. size in the ePub file.

Should I resign myself to fixing these glitches using something like Calibre or Sigil? Or will I need to fiddle with the CSS code?

Would greatly appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks!
