[bksvol-discuss] Re: Protecting chapter heading frustration

The problem is that when the numbers are at the top of the page, they get 
deleted. Should I still put them at the top of the page? You are right, it is 
easier when they are at the top of the page because then I don't have to scroll 
down the entire page to find the number which will tell me if the flagged word 
is on that page. Let me know what you want me to do and I will do it for my 
next scan. Thanks!
   
  HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  Mayrie,

After Lissi commented recently that having the page
numbers at the top of the page helps blind people a
lot because they don't have to fo searching for the
page number, I've been moving all the page numbers to
the top of the page when I validate. Before, I only
moved the number for the first page of the chapter
when it was at the bottom and all the other numbers
were at the top of the page.

I think where the page numbers are is where the
publisher or printer decides to put them and doesn't
have anything to do with the author's intent or
his/her copyright. Likewise, probably, the blank page
at the end of a chapter when the text ends on a
right-hand page rather than a left-hand page. Some
publishers seem to want to start all chapters on the
right-hand page (facing the reader). Those blank pages
usually have to be numbered to retain the pagination
sequence, and it seems stupid to me, because if the
chapter itself ends on the left-hand page here is no
blank page. Who cares? In some books, the publisher
doesn't care on what page the new chapter starts.
