    Hi I am in the final stages of creating an EPUB in Sigil. I originally created my ebook in Ms Word and then exported to a clean HTML. I then tidied it up in Dreamweaver and then imported to SIGIL. I have done everything that I believe I needed to including building my NCX and my inline TOC. Unfortunately when I run the validation tool in Sigial I am getting the following errors:

    1.) This resource is reachable but not present in the OPF <manifest>. "Reachable" means that a reference of some kind that points to this resource exists in the epub.

    2.) This OPS document is reachable but not present in the OPF <spine>. "Reachable" means that a reference of some kind that points to this resource exists in the epub.

    The error doesn't give a line. My original html file that I imported into Sigil was called: PennyStocksBehindtheScenes.html and when I look at the top bar in Sigil the name reads PennyStocksBehindtheScenes.html

    At the bottom of my content.opf file I have the following lines which seem like they relate to this error:

    <item href="Text/PennyStocksBehindtheScenes.html" id="PennyStocksBehindtheScenes.html" media-type="application/xhtml+xml" />
    <spine toc="ncx">
    <itemref idref="PennyStocksBehindtheScenes.html" />

    I tried removing this line <itemref idref="PennyStocksBehindtheScenes.html" /> and then validating again but it just gave more errors. I also tried <item href="Text/PennyStocksBehindtheScenes.html" id="PennyStocksBehindtheScenes.html" media-type="application/xhtml+xml" /> but it also gave more errors when I validated it again.

    Here is my opf file:

    Does any have any idea how I can fix this? This is driving me crazy. I have tried to fix it for hours but I am not experienced at all with this software or creating EPUBS. Thanks
