Don't forget to send me the page number or approximate location of the table.

  If you rescan the table you should probably convert it to simple text instead 
of leaving it as a table because it is very likely that it will not come out 
correctly in the final bookshare files.  I unfortunately don't have a good 
suggestion for what to do to make a table work, since tabs and multiple spaces 
have never appeared in anything I have examined.  I heard that tables would be 
functional at some point, but I haven't heard that the fix was implemented yet.

  As for the extra pages in the book.  I wonder if the validator put the book 
in Word to validate and had it add page breaks because it thought some of the 
pages were too long.  Losing blank pages was common with Kurzweil in the past, 
but adding is a little more strange.  I do find it very annoying when they get 
messed up, but I don't think it is the bookshare system that is doing it.  I am 
certain it is usually caused by the validator.

    Do you want me to try to get the table?The book, I think, was the collected
    short stories of Nathaniel Hawthorne. It wasn't that the contents were
    messed up; it was that in changing the page numbers the number of pages was
    greatly increased; accordingly, the contents were no longer correct; in a
    short story book, that doesn't make the book very easy to use.
