[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page Numbers and Headers on the Same Line

Lisa,

That's probably because as you said, you don't get the whole Stripper thing.

The Stripper strips text from headers, not page numbers.  It processes the
page numbers when it finds them which can make it look as if they are
stripped if you use a tool which doesn't handle the page numbers in the same
way that Bookshare does.  Unfortunately, KES and Bookshare don't treat page
numbers in the same way at the moment, so many members think that the
Stripper has stripped them.

It's a DAISY issue which is a bit involved and is difficult for most
volunteers to understand.  The bottom line is that prior to last April the
DAISY specification did not state exactly how page numbers should be
treated, and not everyone implemented them the same way in DAISY, so they
don't always show up even though they are there.  At some point in the
future though when all the tools support the DAISY standard which was
released last year and Bookshare has rerun the entire collection back
through the tools, then these page numbers which members insist have been
stripped will all show up in K-1000 and other tools which implemented the
page numbers differently than Bookshare.

Hi, all.

I don't really get the whole stripper thing. I've tried it several ways, but

it still seems that when I validate a book, the page numbers get stripped. 
Just my two cents.
