From word doc to Calibre

I converted a word doc to html, opened in Calibre saved as an epub and without any editing came up with this partial list of errors in E Pub Checker.

It's not so much the actual errors as most are microsoft word errors and are ignored. Should I leave or delete? but my concern here is am I always going to have to sift thru these errors when coming from a word doc as this is the third word to epub conversion I did and I have yet to see one that was error free on the first shot.?

I'm going to guess that these ePub check errors will be continuous and yes if the errors worry you then you will have to sift thru them. Unless the epub is somehow non functional these ePub check errors are not really calibre's concern.

Just tried something, took the original word doc went to lulu converted that to epub came back fine. Just wanted to make sure as this tells me I'm better off going right to lulu to convert word docs to epub ( at least only word)


As long as I get no errors and the file validates ?

Rrr
