Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Validating EPUB 2 and EPUB 3 files, part of InDesign CC 2014: EPUBs.
…Unless you're using invalid file names in in design like in…a book file, I can't remember last time that in design was…ever able to spit out an invalid epub, that is an…epub that broke the rules of epub as defined by the idpf.…Still it is a good idea, in fact required that…you validate your e-pubs before you upload them to any e-reseller.…To review, the e-pub rules are, you are creating…either, an e-pub that is compliant with standard e-pub 2.01.…
And you see the same drop down menu in InDesign.…This was the standard that was created in, 2007.…And then 2011, they came up with a more advanced…standard based on html five and css three, called ePub three.…That includes many other…features for interactivity and acc, accessibility, audio visual.…Narration and all sorts of fun kind of stuff,…and that I've talked about in a previous video.…But if you look in detail, at one of these files.…
You'll see that there are many rules, for…different things, like, what is the unique identifier.…How does the EPUB style sheet, the CSS file have to be written?…
