Also, it would be fairly easy to sort the variousfields such as title thus making it easier to look for duplicates, or for people trying to see what they are down for scanning.I don't know how much trouble that would be but if it could be done I thinkit would make for a neat tool. Just a suggestion.

I'll work in Word (rtf) and double-space between entries. Book title, author, scannerand if someone has said they want to proof, proofer will be on one line.Maybe after I get rid of duplications ll will be well and the htmlI attach to send to Pavi won't be too large. It was sending both thebeing-scanned and wish list at the same time that caused the problem. If itturns out to be too large I'll change it to html and save as txt and sent it.Jamie and I tested it out, and I think hat ill work. In the meantme, I'll continue to post updates as they occur.Someone asked how to search the list. Just do a Find for the title or author of the book you're considering scanning and you'll be taken to iton the list and will also see, at the end of that line, who's scanning it(some people like to proof books scanned by particular people--you'll alsoif somone has asked to proofread it Cindy From: Mayrie ReNae <mayrierenae@xxxxxxxxx>Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: A proofreading problem to watch outfor. To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date: Saturday, August 1, 2009, 11:06 PM HI Cindy,The more I think about the size of your list, I see how much space it would save not having blank lines between entries. I respectfullywithdraw my request for blank lines between entries. They look nice, butthey do take up space, and are not necessary if every title/author/scanneris on a line together and only one book per line.
