Anyone game enough to walk this infant through the rest of the process? Sorry to be so needy.
The file you download is a .zip (compressed) file. Double-click it and Mac OS X will expand it back to the original size. You now have an application*.

Drag & Drop your ePub onto the application, and it will check it, and display the results in a dialog.

HTH

*The application is written in AppleScript. This is a neat way to get other programs to do things, and ties it up nicely into a simple application. In your Applications folder you probably have an AppleScript folder, inside which is the Script Editor application. You can use this to look at the script used in the epubcheck applescript program if you like. But there's no need unless you're interested.
