Hi Mayrie!

Thanks for such a helpful message.

I am proofreading with Word 2000 and I am a Window-Eyes user.  I noticed the
page breaks and there were two or three blank pages at the very beginning of
the book, so I deleted them.

That was very helpful about going to the last page to have a number to ad
preliminary pages to.

I read the Scanning and Proofreading Manual as well as the Volunteer
Introduction, so I just needed your assurance that I am on the right track.

Debby
