Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Validating your EPUB, part of Creating Ebooks for the Kindle.
…To convert your epub across, for the Kindle, you'll need a valid epub.…If you plan on, also, or instead publishing…to the iBook store, you'll need a valid epub.…In fact, that's going to be the case for pretty much wherever you intend to publish…your work, even if you use a service…like Smashwords, you'll still require a valid epub.…Calibre doesn't have the term validator, anywhere inside of it, but…it does have a debugger, which pretty much does the same thing.…
It's in the editor workspace, which is the space I'm currently in.…If you're not there already, and you are instead…inside the browser or library, then what you can do…is Right Click on the title you wish to work…with, and choose Edit Book and the editor will launch.…I'm just going to switch back to that from there.…So, up in the tool bar at the top here, you'll see this ladybug icon.…And if you click on that the debugger will launch from there.…And this has no errors in this file.…
