Why the content of my converted ePub got scrambled?

Hi,

I've carefully and painstakingly compose the source in html format, and let say that I have the following files:
* toc
* title page (with book cover scan image)
* inside cover page
* greeting page
* the chapters (ch1 - ch33 + closing + thank you + author's bio)

The following is my content.opf:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<package xmlns="http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf" version="2.0" unique-identifier="uuid_id">
<opf:metadata xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlnspf="http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf" xmlns:dcterms="http://purl.org/dc/terms/" xmlns:calibre="http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/2009/metadata" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">
<dc:identifier id="uuid_id" opf:scheme="uuid">f420408f-b81b-4443-8f29-21cb43fa16a6</dc:identifier>
<dc:creator opf:file-as="lastname, firstname" opf:role="aut">firstname lastname</dc:creator>
<dc:language>en</dc:language>
<dc:title>Book Title</dc:title>
<dcublisher>Publisher</dcublisher>
<dc:date>2004</dc:date>
<dc:subject>Business, Management</dc:subject>
</opf:metadata>
<manifest>
<item href="cover.jpg" id="added1" media-type="image/jpeg"/>
<item href="suwrom.css" id="added" media-type="text/css"/>
<item href="suwrom_ti.html" id="titlepage" media-type="application/xhtml+xml"/>
<item href="suwrom_cv.html" id="insidecover" media-type="application/xhtml+xml"/>
<item href="suwrom_gr.html" id="greet" media-type="application/xhtml+xml"/>
<item href="suwrom_ta.html" id="tcontent" media-type="application/xhtml+xml"/>
<item href="suwrom_ch.htm" id="chapters" media-type="application/xhtml+xml"/>
<item href="toc.ncx" media-type="application/x-dtbncx+xml" id="ncx"/>
</manifest>
<spine toc="ncx">
<itemref idref="titlepage"/>
<itemref idref="insidecover"/>
<itemref idref="greet"/>
<itemref idref="tcontent"/>
<itemref idref="chapters"/>
</spine>
<guide/>
</package>

However, the resulted ePub format have a "scrambled" structure. The TOC always have page 80 (total page is 85) as the first entry.

I've tried with other method such as add only the TOC file and let Eclipse to compose the rest (I've remove all of the meta files, just incase I've supplied wrong meta information) but it still the same.

I tried with several other books and some works nicely, and some are like the one I described above.

Any advice? What's my mistake?

Cheers,
Alex

I'm not sure what's wrong with either Calibre or my document source, however, when I followed the ePub tutorial by JediSaber my ePub works perfectly as intended.

I'm still open for suggestions, though.

Cheers,
Alex
