[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page numbering

Debby, are you sighted or blind? Do you have the print book to work from and 
perhaps a sighted friend or partner who can look at the book and tell you about 
the preliminary pages and where the numbering starts? If not, there are many of 
us who fortunately are sighted and if we can get the same edition of the book 
that uou're proofing will be happy to hslpe you out.
