Epub specs: "Page not found" http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf

The same for:
http://idpf.org/2007/opf/OPF_2.0_final_spec.html

Some days ago I wrote a mail to IDPF, but I didn't get an answer yet.

Does anyone know something about that?

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that's just an XML namespace name (or URI). Even though it looks like a URL, the parser just treats it like a string. It's not used to look up or retrieve any information. There MAY be something at that address if you put a URI into a browser, but there certainly doesn't HAVE to be.

If you're looking for the specs for epub 2.0.1, you'll find them at:

Uff. That's really surprising for me.
Around XHTML I had the experience, that URLs in the prolog
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
are reliable to get to the expected information.

From that pages is my second link of the first post:
http://idpf.org/2007/opf/OPF_2.0_final_spec.html

It is the redirect target of
http://www.openebook.org/2007/opf/OP...inal_spec.html
which is the link after "Previous version" on the page
http://www.idpf.org/epub/20/spec/OPF_2.0.1_draft.htm

Dead links in a spec. Hhmm.

Nope. There MAY be something there (and it may even BE the expected information prepared for human readers) but there's nothing that says there must be (even though many of the more popular URIs DO tend lead to pertinent information).

Dead intradocument link in epub in Calibre but not in iBook viewer

I exported a document in epub 2.0 format from InDesign and opened it in iBooks and all of the links within the document correctly caused me to jump to the associated pages. But when I opened it in Calibre, about half of the links were no longer color coded and dead. Others were still OK. I am asking this in the epub forum because it would seem to be a problem in the eoub code, not the viewer, I think. How do I fix this?
