[bksvol-discuss] Re: Book with very complicated format wondering thoughts

Thanks Carrie, I guess I like the complicated and yet fascinating coffee table 
style books it sems, smile.  This one is definitely a labor of love and I will 
attack it bit by bit by bit till it is in the collection.

Glad to know it is o.k. to move things.

  Hi Shelley and Mayrie,

  In non-fiction books, where there are notes in boxes that interrupt the text, 
I will usually put brackets around the note, so people know what's going on. In 
some books, I've taken to moving text around, because it's way too confusing to 
have one paragraph of the main text split by several boxes of text. This is a 
last resort though. 
  That chocolate book that I validated several years ago, that Shelley sent to 
me, each page had a minimum of 2 small pictures, and each page was split into 9 
sections, with recipes starting in the upper left box, continuing in the middle 
box, and finishing in the upper right box. And there'd be a different sequence 
of boxes on the next page. That was an absolute bear to proof because I was 
moving text around on every single page. 
  Bottom line is that it's a judgment call. The primary goal is readability. If 
it's too confusing to keep the sections of text where they are on the page, 
then please move related sections together.
  Carrie

  Hi Shelley,

      This is just my opinion, and what I would do, but I'd keep related
  text together, however I had to do that.  I have taken to using three
  asterisks to denote section breaks which in the print are denoted by white
  space.  So, if you have to move text so it's connected to its related text,
  I think that would be more than all right.  Perhaps Carrie has opinions, or
  some sort of policy on this?

  Mayrie

  Hi everyone,

  I am editing a book entitled An Illustrated International Encyclopedia of 
  horse Breeds and Breeding, and come to a kind of quandry.  In the book I 
  believe there are lines sperating the entries into boxes, naturally these 
  did not scan.  This wasn't a problem, except now I have two horse breeds who

  have melded.  Luckily i can figure out which belongs to what, how should I 
  connect the right information, can I move it to increase readibility?  This 
  book is going to be a long time in coming, as I have to figure it out bit by

  bit and I only do a couple of pages at a time.  But will be a valuable 
  resource when done.  But just wondering how to keep everything straight.
