[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page numbering

Hi Lynn!

Thanks for such a good illustration of how a blank page should look with the note that it is a blank page. That is the way I thought it should be, but thanks for confirming that I was on the right track. The only blank pages, or at least pages that appeared to be blank were at the verry beginning of the book before the title page. I haven't come across any blank pages yet in the text of the book.

Hi Debby!

There's some explanation of how blank pages are to be treated in the
Volunteer Manual which you can access on Bookshare's volunteer page.

It's important not to delete blank pages, especially if they are numbered.
If you delete these, it could impact the final page count of the book.
Number pages which have no text should be identified with a [ (left bracket)
followed by the phrase This page contains no text. followed by a ](right
bracket).

The page number needs to have a blank line above and below it; and there
should be a blank line after the right bracket, before the page break.

Here's what it should look like.

top of the page
blank line
page number
blank line
[This page contains no text.]
blank line
page break

HTH

Blessings.

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.
