unfinished element?

I get an error in epubcheck to this effect: ERROR: visionsi.epub/OEBPS/content.opf(6): unfinished element

lines 5 and 6 are as follows
<meta name="Sigil version" content="0.2.4"/>
</metadata>


Is meta name unfinished? How do I finish it?

Thanks!

Later: aha, I think perhaps I simply don't have enough information in the metadata. Is that the problem? What is a reasonable short list for the metadata?

You open with meta and close with metadata, make up your mind. They must be the same word. Of course, metadata is the word.

of course it may also be that you have not specified an author, title, and/or language. These are required IIRC.

If any of the required metadata elements are missing, epubcheck will throw the very error you posted.

Flight Crew, OTOH, might even tell you which ones are missing (don't know, I haven't tried).

Not just might, but will.

<metadata xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlnsopf="http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf">
<dc:title>Book Title Goes Here</dc:title>
<dc:creator opf:role="aut">Author Name</dc:creator>
<dc:date opf:event="publication">2010-11-02</dc:date>
<dc:language>en</dc:language>

<meta name="Sigil version" content="0.2.4"/>
</metadata>

The title, date, and language metadata tags are essential to pass validation. -Fabe

I think it is title, ID and language that is essential.

I think that all you need to do is touch the file with Sigils Metadata editor for some of them to be fixed .
Why worry about names, when Sigil will set that part. All you need to do is set the dsts values in the default (supplied fields)
