Problem with page magnification on fixed layout for kindle fire

I am trying to produce a fixed layout ebook for kindle fire with regional magnification. I am using the following coding found in the Amazon guidelines:

<a class="app-amzn-magnify"
data-app-amzn-magnify='{"targetId":"fs1-txt2-magTarget", "sourceId":"fs1-2-txt", "ordinal":1}'>
<div id="fs1-2-txt">
etc etc..


But I keep on getting the following errors when I validate the epub:

there is no attribute "data-app-amzn-magnify" and
document type does not allow element "div" here; missing one of...

With just one paragraph of text formatted in this way, the conversion to mobi works and so does the magnification on my Kindle Fire. But if another page of three regions is set for magnification, the conversion to mobi fails.
It would be greatly appreciated if anyone with any experience could help me with this.

A Kindle doesn't read ePub, so don't be surprised if documents for Kindle are not valid ePub.

As to any proprietary Amazon attribute failing epub validation... well yeah... that's going to happen. But are you intentionally nesting a div element inside an anchor element? If that's Amazon's suggested method, then so be it. But where does the closing anchor tag happen? That's not included in you snippet.

You're right I only put the end of the code. Yes it seems that I shouldn't have expected an epub check to pass proprietory Amazon code.

Thanks for your help
