[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page Breaks Was: font Question

Hi Jackie,

You can't count on the page count given on the web site to be accurate.
You're better off making sure that the number of pages match the page
numbers.  Of course, add to that the preliminary pages as you said.

Hi Kim,
What I usually do is check page breaks and such as I go along or at the
beginning of the book I try to make sure that only the number of pages
specified by the scanner in the about the book page are present.
Well those plus the stuff in the front.
Hope that helps,
Jackie
