Hi, everyone! Thanks for your input. I sure did open a can of worms, now, didn't I?! Oh, well, leave it to me to get things all stirred up! <LOL>

Tracy, thanks for your kind words and suggestions. That's exactly what I used to do with headings and page numbers, but with all the discussion about headers and footers over the last few months, I got a little confused. <Smile> I took a long break from validating and scanning, but I am at least working on pre-validating some books that are languishing on my laptop. I also brought three books to the hotel with me, along with my handy little Cannon scanner. It's slower than my Epson 1660, but my understanding is that it's very accurate. I haven't used it in a long time, but I bought it for the situations like this, when I might want/need to scan something while on the road. I just didn't count on the fact that "on the road" might be ten minutes from my house, for an extended period of time! <LOL> I actually am going out of town tomorrow for a couple of days, so at least staying in a hotel will seem more normal! <Smile>

Anyway, BookShare has certainly helped to keep my spirits up! I can be just about anywhere as long as I have books to keep me company. Between BookShare and the audio-described movies on Freedom Box, I'm gonna make it through this little hurdle just fine! <Smile> Thanks again, everyone!

P.S. I forgot to mention that in the middle of the craziness with my house, my cell phone has decided to quit working, making it nearly impossible to work or keep up with when I'm supposed to be where. I'm using a Nokia 6620 cell phone with the Talks software. The problem is definitely Talks-related. If anyone on the list might be able to help me, please e-mail me off list at

My father is back in the hospital, and I really hate to leave town without a way to get in touch quickly if necessary. Thanks again!

Jana,
Sorry to hear you're an evacuee.  But what dedication, to bring your
Bookshare stuff with you!

You seem to be saying that you are protecting page numbers with stars. You
should not.  The stripper needs the page numbers to be recognizable so it
can put them in the file for Daisy readers (us non-Daisy users are just out
in the cold.)  As I understand it, the page number must be on the first, or
last, line of a page, with a blank line below it, or above it, if it's on
the bottom.  Then, the stripper is supposed to recognize it and, yes, strip
it, putting it into some place for Daisy to see.

What I do with headers, as a validator, is cut out the text portion, and
leave the page number, then make sure the number is at the top, with a blank
line under it, or at the bottom, with a blank line before it.  Clear as Mud?

What you did with chapter headings sounds fine.

I'm about to submit a book which I've been working on for a while. I have
left the headings in the book for now, and I've protected the chapter
headings and page numbers with asterisks.  The chapter headings have
asterisks on the very top line of the page, followed by a blank line.  The
page numbers, which are at the bottom of the page, are followed by a blank
line and then about five asterisks.

My question is actually twofold, I guess. Will this be enough to keep the
stripper from going too far?  If so, should I go ahead and strip the
headers, replacing them with asterisks?  I know we've about discussed this
one to death, but since I don't have all of the BookShare posts on my
laptop, and since I've had just a few things on my mind other than Bookshare
for the past week and a half, I thought I'd see if someone could refresh my
memory.  Thanks!

Jana
