[bksvol-discuss] Re: intro and a few questions

Sarah, and Mayrie;

I cannot pull your email from your message unfortunately, Sarah, so I need to 
write via the list.  Feel free to email me at vlmaples@xxxxxxxxxxxxx  I did not 
think Text Edit was sophisticated enough to edit at a Bookshare level, but I 
can 
try and look at it.  I use  Microsoft Word or Pages, preferably Word since 
Pages 
does funky things in RTF.  Unless there are more Mac users here, we can take 
this private so as to not clog the list with confusing things.  Pages, does, 
though, eliminate page breaks, but in a replaceable way that can, 
unfortunately, 
add additional page breaks.  It can get a little dicey if not in Word, in my 
experience.
