Hi Jim, 

Okay, being still some what a newbie and haven't come across this yet... 

<<, however, if  you set the operator page numbers to skip the preliminary
pages and set page 1 at the actual beginning of the book they are then
correct and the table of contents  matches, so I do not believe there any
missing page breaks.>>

How does one do this:)

Kenneth,
I have just redownloaded Thieves Dozen with Kurzweil and you are  right 
that the page numbers are not correct, however, if  you set the operator 
page numbers to skip the preliminary pages and set page 1 at the actual 
beginning of the book they are then correct and the table of 
contents  matches, so I do not believe there any missing page breaks.

I have no idea how the Braille version would turn out.
I agree that the stripper could be modified in some way to retain the 
actual page numbers, but I believe the elimination of the stripper would 
result in even more confusion.
