validation problem with Sigil

Hi Threaders,
I am new to e-book creation. Taking an open office document, saving it as html, then to Calibre to convert to epub, then to Sigil for editing. Making lots of new chapters and all is working well. However when I validate I get certain error messages.

OEBPS/images/cover_picture.jpeg the resouce is present in the OPF<manifest> but it is not reachable (it's unused)
OEBPS/content.opf the <title> element is missing
OEBPS/content.opf the <language> element is missing

If anyone has time to explain the fixes for these I would be very grateful. I live in a small costal village in eastern australia and do not have easy access to your combined braininess.

I can get to the content.opf and the toc in html but I am wary of editing until I understand my problem more clearly. I need to be able to write the <title> and <language> in the second line of the content.opf but am unsure how to do this in html. I can find no line/s with <title> or <language> to edit in title of book or English as it seems to demand. Is there a formula I should follow?

cheers

grant

The first error message tells you that the document includes an unused image (cover_picture.jpeg). To solve this, just delete the images (in the images folder in the book browser) or put it somewhere in the document.

For the remaining errors, go to Edit --> Meta Editor and enter Title and Language in the dialog and exit with the OK button.

If you want a cover, you need to have a xhtml file which calls the cover. Just an image is not enough.

Thank you

My thanks to Pablo for a quick and precise resolution to my problem. Worked a treat.

I also found a program that most of you are probably familiar with that eliminated my use of Calibre. This is the plug in to Open Office by Luke Write to Epub and it also made the process easier.

I am sure to have other problems as I go along and would like to thank all of you.

cheers

I'm glad it worked.
I've written a simple tutorial on html/css/ePub/Sigil (see my signature) that you may find useful.
