EPUB refusé par une librairie en ligne

Bonjour, Je suis auteur de livre d'arts. Mon téléchargement sur le site d'un LIBRAIRE US a été rejeté pour le motif suivant  

"Le document que vous avez soumis échoue à EpubCheck. Vous pouvez continuer, mais certains canaux de vente seront désactivés, ERREUR(RSC-005) : /OEBPS/toc.xhtml(9,9) : Erreur lors de l'analyse du fichier : élément "ol" incomplet ; élément requis "li" manquant".

Comment résoudre ce problème; j'ajoute que je le converti en EPUB à partir de INDESIGN ADOBE? CHATGPT que j'ai interoger me propose de bidouiller un fichier toc.xhtml.

Est-il possible de régler le problème en amont, dans INDESIGN ?

Merci d'avance de vos recommandations

It's a common TOC error. Under "Navigation TOC," set 'File Name' instead of None.

 

If you uploaded a fixed-page EPUB and got only this technical error... you're lucky. 🙂

 

And you basically never want to edit an exported EPUB. All such techniques are somewhere between unnecessary and obsolete, especially for InDesign development.

Bonjour, Merci de votre réponse. Vous me dites "Under "Navigation TOC," set 'File Name' instead of None"; je suppose que cette action ne se fait pas directement avec le logiciel INDESIGN ?  Merci d'avance.

Yes, in the EPUB export menu, the drop-down choice 'Navigation Menu' should be set at 'File Name,' not 'None,' even if you have no dynamic TOC defined or included.

 

'None' results in a small technical glitch, an XHTML <ol> structure with no content (no <li> items), which is utterly trivial except that some validators and book vendors flag it as a fault. Using the other menu settings, even with no TOC, inserts an empty <li> item, which makes the validator happy.

 

I am not sure this is any kind of bug or fault of ID's, just one more area where "standards" don't match up.

Tout ce qu'est EPUB m'est étranger, mais d'après ce que je lis de la réponse de @James Gifford—NitroPress , c'est cette option que tu dois choisir

INDESIGN 2021
Ok merci à tout les deux mais cela n'a pas fonctionné. J'ai fait l'opération d'exportation en EPUB comme recommandé sur INDESIGN 2021 mais un message est apparut

"Ancre de texte externe introuvable : 1 L'ancre de texte dans « /Users/angrandjeanluc/Library/Caches/Adobe InDesign/Version 16.0/fr_FR/InDesign ClipboardScrap1 » est manquante : 1"

DRAFT2DIGITAL
Toutefois j'ai quand même décidé de passer en force et de tenter de télécharger sur la plateforme numérique DRAFT2DIGITAL mais un sérieux message d'alerte est apparut

"WARNING: Apple, Tolino, OverDrive, Amazon, Bibliotheca, Baker & Taylor, Hoopla, Vivlio, D2D Print, BorrowBox, Smashwords, Palace Marketplace, and Gardners will be disabled until this epub can pass EPUB version 3.0 rules". Je ne vendrais rien si je persiste sur ce chemin.

INDESIGN 2021
Je n'ai pas vu la possibilité d'exporter en EPUB 2 ou 3 sur INDESIGN 2021 alors j'en ai naturellement déduit que j'exporte en EPUB 3 puisque j'ai la dernière version de INDESIGN 2021 par abonnement en ligne. Peut-être y a t'il une mis à jour qui n'a pas été faite; normalemant cela est automatique pour tout les logiciels compris dans mon abonnement?

Merci d'avance pour vos réponses.

Bonne journée

Nota : Pour information je n'ai pas créer une table des matières avec des hyperliens dans mon livre est-t-il possible que cela génére ce problème?

I have no idea why an EPUB export would be seeking an 'external text anchor.' Can you identify the document element that this error is pointing to, and perhaps change the way it is linked into the document?

 

Also, more of an opinion than an absolutely fact, but most of those e-book sellers are of such minor importance that I'm not sure they are worth considering for either error correction guidelines or uploading. Except for some niche works and genres, about 95% of all e-books are sold through Kindle (by far the largest market), with some through Apple and Google. The rest, even SmashWords, are... trivial. (I don't think I've ever sold a title, across a range of categories and types, in any of those minor marketplaces.) I just would not worry about anything but Kindle (conversion) and Apple (optimized EPUB) unless you have good evidence your work would sell on those minor outlets.

 

You also need to be aware that there is next to no such thing as an EPUB standard out in the actual marketplace. Every EPUB reader has its own quirks and demands, and a book that is optimized for one may have all kinds of rendering and readability faults on another. It is common for a "perfect," plain-vanilla EPUB that passes validation and reads on the simple readers like Calibre and EPUBreader to fail Apple's standards, or have display problems there that need to be addressed... making the doc faulty on other readers.

 

So spending time getting a version that will pass each seller's standards (or, to be fair, each group of sellers with similar standards) may be a lot of fussy work that ultimately has no return value.

 

But as for that error, it's a strange one and I can't even guess what's causing it unless you can identify that object or a link within the book that is trying to connect to an "external" element.

Ok merci pour toute ces informations; j'en tiens compte. J'ai trouvé quelqu'un sur FIVERR qui va s'occuper du formatage EPUB et me faire une table des matières hyperliens; effectivement elle me dit que l'important c'est KDP et APPLE et que pour les agrégateurs il faut mieux leurs signaler le problème sur leurs emails pour qu'ils le réglent en interne. Merci pour l'aide.

KDP has next to no individual user support of any value and I'd be surprised if problems with the thousands of first-time and amateur users even register with their support/technology department. Since Apple uses a more basic file form (EPUB vs the conversion to whatever format KDP is using this week), there may be meaningful fixes, but I would not be surprised if they are all but unique to Apple and iBooks.
