attribute "span" not

I've made an ePub book with Sigil, and ePubValidator (http://threepress.org/document/epub-validate/) gives this error:

ERROR: Origino de specioj.epub/OEBPS/Text/content022.xhtml(94): attribute "span" not allowed at this point

I cannot find anything wrong. Does someone know how to interpret the number (94) behind the page name? I thought it might be the 94th line, but the 94th line from Sigils point of view is empty. 94th character in the file doesn't make sence either ...

Without the epub file in question, helping you is impossible.

FWIW, I have received a similar error once and it was because < span > is an inline element by default and I had used a < span > tag that was NOT inside a block level tag. It was only inside the < body > tag.

Once I placed it within a block level tag (like a <p > < /p > tag set) that error message went away for me.

But the error messages from epubcheck are so vague I have no idea if you are having the same issue or not.

Thanks for trying, Kevin, but no, I've just checked: every < span > element is within a <p > element ...

Thanks for the suggestion, Valloric, but publishing it here could give problems with copyright. Can I send it somehow privately?

It's the 94th line. But not the 94th line in Sigil, but the 94th line in the source file content022.xhtml, where lines are delimited by CR/LF or CR or LF.

Create an issue on the tracker and use the "Private" label. Only you and I will be able to see it. More details on this wiki page.

Thanks. I thought both were the same, but there is indeed a slight difference in counting. The 94th line in the source is the 103rd line in Sigil.

But the bad news is, that the 94th line is a blank line between two paragraphs ...

So a start supposing that EPUBValidator is getting crazy ...

Often an error turns up because of a lack of something. This results in a display like you are seeing. Perhaps there should have been a </span> before the point in the file or it is not well nested.

Could you tell us please what the problem was that you found?

Yes, all my paragraphs have the basic form < p > ... </ p> but one of them had this structure: < p span="" >

I haven't the slightest idea how it came there, and why I managed not to see it ...

Today I had a similar problem. I imported an HTML file in Sigil. This file had many < h1 > chapters. After opening it in Sigil I saw that every < h1 > had been changed to < h1 class="" >. This empty class gave the same error message as the strange span="" yesterday.

That's strange. Could you make a small test case that reproduces the problem and then report it on the tracker?
