[bksvol-discuss] Re: Question re caps

NO, SOME BOOKS CAPITALIZE THE FIRST LINE OF THE PAGE, AND THE FIRST SENT-
ence is longer than a single line, so you end up with something like this
when they allow hyphenated words at the end of lines.

I don't understand why publishers think this is a good practice, but I've
seen this several times, so some publishers must like it.

As I said, I compromise by putting the word SENTence back together, then
changing it to SENTENCE so that it looks like the following.

Still looks a bit odd, but its better than leaving the split word there, and
it attempts to preserve what the publisher wants the text to look like.

Are you telling me that the original print would have a sentence where the 
first few words are in solid caps and the rest of the sentence is 
not?  Example below.

THIS IS A SAMple sentence.

Isn't this a scanning error?
