Picture book for ipad has errors

I have made a picture book (childrens story) which I hope to sell on iTunes as an ibook. I already have it listed on and they are going to send it to apple. However, it fails the epubcheck validation on two things:

1.ERROR: Harolds House.epub/META-INF/encryption.xml(1): unfinished element
2.ERROR: Harolds House.epub/OEBPS/content.opf(2): date value '' is not valid, YYYY[-MM[-DD]] expected

How can I correct this so it will pass? Is there any way I can correct these errors in Adobe InDesign CS4 before saving as an epub file?

Also, each page is a full jpeg image with the text in the image. What size should these pages be for maximum visibility on the ipad? I viewed one on my ipod touch but it seems quite small and does not fill the screen like other ibooks do.

Any help here greatly appreciated.
