Hi, Reggie. Actually, footnotes and the information they pertain to should be kept. The book I'm doing right now has footnotes, where the number appears right up against the end of the sentence, and at the end of the book, the pertinent information is listed. Whoever validates this book, please leave them in! <smile> You're actually editing the book's content by removing those, and that's not something we're supposed to do. Footnotes sometimes don't scan well, but if they do, don't remove them. Take care. Julie Morales Life is a gift from God. What we do with it is our gift to Him. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Regina alvarado" <regandlon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, January 11, 2006 12:54 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Question on validating editing? Katie: I am probably behind on this one I am sure since I am just home. However, I had this problem. It is a number to identify a footnete. Now I have one, and I hope the answer does not mess me up. I am validating a book with stories in it. Everytime I get to a new stoffy there is a description of the author and then the story begins. It too has 1 right up next to the title of the story and then after the description of the author on the following page is I believe what is referred to. There is a copyright date for the story and after that is the regular header for the page. I have been taking out the number and also the copyright info on the stories (not the book). Am I doing this wrong? Sure hope not as I am getting toward the end. Will go back and fix if necessary, but hose I don't have to.
