Monica:
You are welcome.  Don't take me to heart.  Just keep proofing on PM.  I have
had a bad run of luck, but as Allyssa said, save/save/save! (smiles)  Beware
also, and really pay heed to this.  When you first open a book in FSEdit, if
you decide to try it, let the file open completely.  Put your finger on the
cursor and wait and wait and wait until that cursor starts flashing.  It is
then fully open.  If you happen to begin reading, or trying to read before
the cursor flashes, the book will be corrupted.  Learned the hard way.

Alyssa, Evan, and others, I really appreciate your ideas and help about
working with Braille. It is something I had no way to do until 2 months ago,
and you have so much knowledge and experience that I don't. Learning to use
the Pac Mate has felt like singing along with a song where I only know the
chorus and a few words of the verses. Most of my questions on various lists
have been met with the advice to "upgrade to an Omney," and I can't do that
since this device belongs to my employer. I've wanted Braille access for
years, and I'm thrilled to have it now. I'm glad to know that I can use
FSEdit for proofreading because it keeps track of the place where you
finished reading and opens up to that spot when you open the file again.
Pocket Word doesn't do that. Thanks for all of your ideas and for helping me
feel more confident with my Pac Mate.
