Validation error new with Calibre 0.7.6

Hi,

Ever since updating to Calibre 0.7.6 I have been getting this error when I use epubcheck to validate my ebooks:

ERROR: Bookname.epub/toc.ncx(2): bad value for attribute "lang" from namespace "http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace"

it seems that previous ebooks I have converted have this in the tox.ncx file:

<ncx xmlns="http://www.daisy.org/z3986/2005/ncx/" version="2005-1" xml:lang="UND">

but now they have this:

<ncx xmlns="http://www.daisy.org/z3986/2005/ncx/" version="2005-1" xml:lang="en_GB">

Which causes validation problems..Can someone please shed some light on this issue?

Also, another slightly unrelated questions - why is there no ISBN metadata field when converting books in Calibre? Why can they only be added after?

Cheers,
James

I insert the ISBN in the metadata field prior to converting my book. After I convert the book I use Sigil to open the ePub and look at the metadata and the ISBN is always correct.

Is there any way of changing this in the source files so it applies it to all my books that I create automatically?

Because it's not something most people need to set at convert time.
