    Errors message showing in ADE


      Hi All,


      I am getting the following message in Adobe Digital Editions when I open an epub that I created programmatically.


      "the document appears to have minor errors that might cause it to be displayed incorrectly"


      The epub is displaying fine in Calibre.


      The html and css is valid. No warnings. Perfectly fine.


      I have checked the epub files using Epubcheck validators. It is perfectly fine and no warnings or errors.


      I have no idea how else to check it to find out what could be causing this error. Does anyone have any idea?


      I need to solve this problem immediately.


      Thanks in advance for all your help/

          I got a solution to the below mentioned problem myself.


          The main problem is due to usage of pseudo elements in the external stylesheet.


          e.g. abstract:before & abstract:after


          /*.abstract:before {

          content: "Abstract" ;

          display: block;

          font-weight: bold;

          margin: .67em 0;



          If I comment the above code in the stylesheet eradicate the ADE problem.


          We have to also ensure that the stylesheet used does not have any errors in it.


          I am posting this because this would help anybody is facing the same problem.
