[bksvol-discuss] Re: No chapter headings

I like this idea! Simple, straightforward, almost no extra work, and understandable.

Hi all:

I'm wondering if there isn't a compromise that can combine both these
methods; this message may be rather long, so please bear with me.

Deborah Murrey proposed an excellent solution for footnote numbers
that involves asterixs; however, I noticed, while perusing her post
that each asterix is supposed to have spaces between it and iether the
next word or asterix.

So, what if we used, let's say, four asterixs to denote the change in
chapters, all together.  For example: ****, and then bolded them and
put them in 16 point.

I'm suggesting four because three usually denotes the sort of scene
breaks/time jumps Xchel's post addressed.

Then, at the beginning of the book, we could put a proofer's note,
explaining that the four asterixes denoted a change in chapter; a way
for the Braille readers among us to know exactly when a chapter
changed, not get it confused with a scene break/time jump, and only
need to add extra words once *smile*
