New user, conversion problem...

I have tried as much as my limited brain will allow on a conversion from .lit to epub, with no luck. Here's the error info, with hopes you smarter folks can help me solve the issue:

You should open a bug and post your file. Something about it's formatting is preventing the text processing function from working as designed.

Immediate fix would be to use Convertlit to extract the html from the file and convert from html instead of Lit.
