Then those are likely actually being produced by calibre during conversion from a Kindle format. See my prior post.
that's probably what's happening. I'm converting and reconverting to minimize the margins.

Although kinda weird though. Because if I run calibre's epub checker again it will tell me to fix those links.

You can avoid those TOC entries if you use the "KF8 to ePub" function of the kindleunpack plugin to convert AZW3 to EPUB instead of doing via calibre conversion.

But do you then have to make sure the ePub is free of errors? Every KF8 > ePub via KindleUnpack has errors that Calibre's error checker and epubcheck will flag.

Then shifting may be the solution to the problem of sending KF8 eBooks to Amazon to then send them back.

But really, why bother when you can just sync without shifting/emailing?

Interesting. If i use the ModifyEpub plugin to add/replace the cover on KindleUnpack generated epub, I will get errors due to a missing DOCTYPE in cover.xhtml. Otherwise, Sigil's builtin checker and EpubCheck don't seem to have any issues with either epub2 or epub3 output from KindleUnpack. I do have KindleUnpack's epub output version selector set to auto-detect so I will get epub2 or epub3 epubs.

Basically I have a very different experience from yours.

Well, it is I who bought all the Kindles that are used with my account although it is mostly friends of mine who use them, so I guess there is not much Amazon can say about it.

Please excuse poor untechnological me, but I see much of the discussion revolves about "TOC", and I don't know what it is. Would someone give a link where I can find what it means (Google only says "troubles obsessionnels compulsifs", which is certainly not what is meant...) and why they seem to be an issue ? Thanks a lot in advance.

TOC in this context means Table Of Contents

They are an issue mostly due to the way Amazon expects them to be formatted. EPUBs typically allow a certain flexibility in how the TOC is structured, but Amazon has some constraints in place which will make them reject EPUBs which are normally accepted by other readers.

Thank you for explaining.
Hanging on to the Send-to-Kindle with Mobis option while it lasts (in spite of the recent unpractical change whereby for instance it has become impossible to have ? or " in a title that are replaced by _ just like for PDFs), I haven't had to deal with that problem so far - though I'm sure this is going to come and plague me at some point.

You don't know that. I doubt anyone here really knows what Amazon can and cannot do.
