Trouble uploading to Apple
Hey, all -
I would greatly appreciate any insight you have on uploading .epub files via iTunes Connect.
My most recent error message -
"1 package(s) were not uploaded because they had problems:
/Users/local/_______L/_____/Music/iTunes Producer/Playlists/9781614076056.itmsp - Error Messages:
Apple's web service operation was not successful
Unable to authenticate the package: 9781614076056.itmsp
ERROR ITMS-3000: "Line 311 column 99: character content of element "file_name" invalid; must be a string matching the regular expression "[^./: ]+([.][^./: ]+)+" at XPath /package/book/assets/asset/data_file/file_name""
It looks like a filename problem, but I can't identify where it's originating. The Metadata all looks good in the OPF.

Sigil does show some strange characters when I go to validate, but they look fine to me.
Sigil points me to number of lines in my document, saying "no character data is allowed by content model."
"element 'br' is not allowed for content model '(p|h1|h2|h3|h4|h5|h6|div|ul|ol|dl|pre|hr|blockquo te|address|fieldset|table|switch|form|noscript|ins |del|script)' "
It looks like most of the problems have to do with block quotes. I'm assembling them like so:
Neither party expected for the war the magnitude or the duration which it has already attained... as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”<br class="calibre1" />
<br class="calibre1" />
With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
Admittedly, my html isn't the strongest.
Any thoughts? thanks in advance for any input.

If Sigil shows strange characters, correct them even if they show normal to you. Normal is a very general term of course... What is normal for me does not have to be normal for you.
Regarding the <br />, it should fall inside <p></p> tags. Apparently it is not allowed inside pure blockquotes. If you wrap a <p>...<br />...</p> in blockquotes it is allowed.
