[bksvol-discuss] Re: Validating a txt document

Thanks to all of you who gave me information about what txt files do and don't 
retain. I'll try the 
two-dashes for the em dash that Sarah suggested and won't bother about italics 
or anything, or different 
fonts.

My machine gives me options of saving in text only,text with line breaksm 
MS-DOS text, MS-DOS text with 
line breaks, unicode text and text with layout. This document, when I opened 
it, was in text only and so I 
thought I'd better keep it in that. I do know that if I change it to Word or 
rtf I can't upload it. If I change it to 
one of the other forms of text willI I be able to upload it, or do I have to 
keep it as it is? I don't know if any 
of the other forms will keep anything like italics or em dashes, but if they 
don't translate into what you 
hear if you're listening to a book or into Braille, then there's no point -- 
and maybe I won't bother with 
those any more when I do rtf documents -- though there are some members of 
bookshare who are 
sighted enough to read, are there not? I don't know what Daisy is --is it 
audible or visual?
