Question Epub validation errors

Hi everyone, I'm new here and I'm having some trouble. I created my ebook in open office, made the epub with the epub extension. Looks great in ADE however when I run a validation I come back with a long list of errors. I've downloaded Sigil to look at each file verbatim but I'm a little lost on what to do. Could any one provide assistance.

I see that its telling me text but what exactly am I looking for? Thanks in advance!

/OEBPS/Text/content0002.xhtml(49): 'Chapter4': fragment identifier is not defined in 'OEBPS/Text/content0002.xhtml'

/OEBPS/Text/content0002.xhtml(43): 'Chapter1': fragment identifier is not defined in 'OEBPS/Text/content0002.xhtml'

There needs to be a file name before the '#', i.e. something like
href="OEBPS/Text/content0003.xhtml#Chapter1"

Thanks for the response!

Do I need to include this for every href occurrence in content0002.xhtml and reference it accordingly to the other content00XX.xhtml files??

If you have a good toc.ncx (external ToC), then you don't actually need the file with the links (internal ToC).

Post New error message

Playing around in Sigil I added the link after the href I validated again to see which errors I would get. It's a much shorter list but here's what the new errors are.

Let Sigil generate the ncx ToC automatically. You need to be very precise if you're editing it by hand.

If you're using the 0.4.0RC1 release of Sigil then you need to click the button at the bottom of the Table of Contents window, it should happen automatically in older versions.

Assuming you used h1, h2, h3, etc. tags for those things you want in the TOC.

Question

I seem to be lost guys. I tried the toc button at the bottom of the table of contents tab. Resaved, then ran another epub validation to see what errors I got this time. I received the same ones and I'm lost. Please help!

Here's what threepress said:
epub/toc.ncx(74): assertion failed: different playOrder values for navPoint/navTarget/pageTarget that refer to same target


So I went into Sigil, looked at the toc.ncx file and copied the section in question.


69 <navPoint id="navPoint-10" playOrder="10">
<navLabel>
<text>The 5 things to avoid!</text>
</navLabel>
<content src="Text/content0011.xhtml" />
74 </navPoint>


Next I went to the content0011.xhtml to see if something was wrong in the coding there. I couldn't find anything other than this:

<h1 class="center" id="heading_id_10"><span class="bold">The 5 things to avoid!</span></h1>


Other than other help that I've read, is it possible the span tags could be creating the issue? Should I remove them or change them to 'strong'?

I doubt the span tag is causing the problem, although it is unnecessary as H1 is always bold automatically.

What the error is saying is that there are two references in the TOC that point to the same place. It is likely that you have a case problem. Sigil is case sensitive. I suspect you have two references with different capitalization that point to the same place.
