No, I haven't ran into any hyphenated or unhyphenated words that should be. I've just ran into many split words.

No hyphens? Really? I've seen a lot of books where words are split between two

no way to do it automatically because you don't know what the other half of the 
word is.

Wait--you said you're validating the book. I'll bet the submitter globally deleted the hyphens at the ends of lines--perhaps all hyphens. Do you have words that are combines that actually should be hyphenated? I've validated books here that has been the case, e.g., two-year-old has become twoyearold.

Date: Friday, November 14, 2008, 7:14 There are no hyphens. The way the book is, books are split
up. For instance, one half of a word is on the bottom of one
page, and the second half of the word is on the top of the
next page.

Hi, Nimer.
Do you mean that one word is hyphenated so that half
of it is on one page and continues onto the next page?  If
so, I usually just put the word on the first page and delete
the second half of it from the second page.
Or, do you mean that all of the words are split
between two pages so that, if you put the two pages
together, you'd actually have one page?  If that's
the case with every page and you'd basically have to
rewrite the book, sadly, you should probably reject it.

Hello,
I am currently validating a long book where words
are split over two pages. Is there a way to make the words
onto one page without going through and changing every one
of them individually? This is a 400-page book, and while
I'm reading it through, it takes too long to stop after
every page to combine a word that was split onto different
pages.
Thanks
