[bksvol-discuss] Re: Headers question for scanning

Hi, Lissi. Page numbers do now appear in the braille files, and I've been 
meaning to discuss this with you, anyway. I'm finally getting around to 
looking at A CELTIC CHRISTMAS, which was submitted after the BRF files were 
redone, and there are two page numbers in the file now. There's the page 
number the Bookshare system puts in, then the page number I'm assuming you 
put in, so somehow, they didn't end up matching up. That's another reason, I 
suppose, I just leave the headers in, especially if the page number appears 
in that header, which often, in the books I scan, it does. Take care.

Dear Volunteers,

I'm interested in the answer to Rick's question, too. When I validate I
delete the running headers. Am I confusing the system even more than usual
by doing this. And, are page numbers better at the top? I thought the last
word was it didn't matter, but I'd gladly put them uniformly at the top.

I know they should be all at the top or all at the bottom but not in mixed
locations within a book.

If brf file users have a never fail system for protecting page numbers so
they appear in the collections downloaded books, I'd be relieved to have
this foolproof method and would use it religiously.

Currently, I've abandoned my extra blank line with a line of dash dash dash,
and just place a blank line above and below page numbers.

Always with love,

Lissi
