Actually that wasn't too bad. I ended up using elibrarans
batch file process and set it up to drag&drop the epub onto it...worked great. The only downside is having to have java installed...with all of its inherent security risks...
Epubcheck Version 3.0
Validating against EPUB version 2.0
No errors or warnings detected.
So apparently ePubcheck3 says it's good to go.
- It displays fine in Sigil
- It displays fine in ePubReader plugin for Firefox
- It displays fine in Azardi
- It displays fine in Kobo iOS
- It displays fine in Stanza iOS
- It displays perfectly in Marvin
- It compiles in ADE but does NOT display the images
- It compiles in Kindle Previewer but does NOT display the images (no warnings)
- It does NOT display the images in Nook/Blio/Bluefire/iBooks iOS
So...in my very Sherlock-like fashion I deduce that
1) Lots of vendors SUCK - and don't comply with standards!
2) The Pseudo elements/classes MUST
be supported - but aren't
and the answer to my question
3) Yes, it appears that Flightcrew is giving an error where there should NOT be one...and it is safe to ignore the error (it's legal), but depending on the reader/device the user may or may not enjoy the produce of your hard earned efforts...
