[bksvol-discuss] Re: Special Character Handling

Hi Bob,

I think that most books containing foreign words represent them with their
accent marks.  Unfortunately, often those marks get lost during scanning and
OCR.  So, the short answer is that if the marks were there in the print copy
of the book, and I believe that generally, if not always, they are, no we
aren't changing the text of the book.

That's my experience anyway.

Isn't that changing the book's contents?

Hi Kim and Gary!

Also, foreign words aren't really correct without the accents.
