Laura,

What program are you using to open this RTF file?

Pratik

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Validating a Strange .Ark Book

Typically, the first thing I do with a .ark book is extract it to RTF.  I'm
going to read and upload it in that format anyway, so why not?

When I did my Save as, and then opened the RTF file, this is an example of
what I got.

{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\uc1 \page \fs22 Praise for \i Wake Up, Sir!\par
\fs20 \par \i0 \rdblquote Jonathan 
Ames\rquote s latest comic novel is so brilliant and charming that any 
description of it is bound to be impossibly dull by comparison.\rdblquote
\par 
\fs18 \par \i \'97Seattle Weekly\par \fs20 \par \i0 \rdblquote Hilariously

It goes on like that throughout the book.  When you look at the book in
Openbook, it looks fine, and there are divisions between pages, etc.  In the
RTF format, there aren't divisions between pages, either.

I've done this same thing repeatedly with .ark books before without this
difficulty.  Is there some config setting I can change to make the book save
properly?

Thanks,

Lora
