Cindy, As you can see, I'm back. We had a good visit from Karen's parents, and I'm feeling better, though I'm still suffering a lot from allergies. As for your question, do not put anything above page numbers when they are in the header, or after page numbers when they are in the footer. If you do, then the tool that volunteers call the Stripper can not recognize the page numbers since they will not be in either the first or last paragraph on the page which is where the validation instructions specify that they should be in order for the Stripper to work properly. Sorry I haven't gotten around to checking those four books you asked me to check. I'll try to do it now that Karen's parents have left.

I know at least two of you downloaded some books for me to check if the page numbers were there or were missing. It seems to me someone said they were missing, except that where I put a header word about the chapter page the chapter was retained. And I remember that someone--Mike? Allison? both? put asterisks or dashes or words as headers to preserve the page numbers but then someone else said that wasn't necessary. What I need to know now is if I should put a word as a footer between my page number and the page break at the bottom of the page, to retain those numbers. If someone wouldn't mind downloading Cass Timberlane and checking to see if the page numbers are still there, you'd have in your collection a classic and would also be able to answer my questin (smile). Thanks in advance--or for any advice based on your experience without downloading the book. Cindy __________________________________ Yahoo! Music Unlimited Access over 1 million songs.
