[bksvol-discuss] Re: "Bois, W. E. B. Du"

Hi Ann. When I saw this subject, I was about to correct you. I'm glad to see
this caught your attention. Is it possible whoever submitted this book just
placed a comma in the wrong place?

Hi all,

Well, the subject line pretty much says it all.  Folks, we have to do
something about the way the system treats unusual names of authors like
this.  It looks dumb, frunkly!  I think that someone as important to
American history and Black history in particular deserves better.  W. E. B.
Du Bois was one of the most famous civil rights activists of the early 20th
century, and to have this author's name massacred like this is criminal.  Is
there nothing that can be done about this?  One should look under D not B
for this author's name.  

Also, on a totally different matter, I tried something totally new with my
last proofing job.  I checked the fonts of the chapter titles in the
Godzilla book I just submitted, and I found that the type was the same size
as the text.  So, I used the alt-ctrl-1 command on the selected text and
made it into a heading.  I hope it worked OK.  I'd really be interested in
knowing if what I did panned out or not.  So if any staff are interested,
the book is Godzilla:  Journey to Monster Island, Book 3 by Scott Ciencin.

Ann P.
