[bksvol-discuss] Re: pre-marking RTF files

Hi,
Word really messes up HTML. Please, let's not go there. Instead, I wonder
out loud if we couldn't create a Word template that could be used with the
Microsoft Save as DAISY plug-in to automate the process that way some how.
Just dreaming. We could make a menu in Word called Bookshare Markup and all
the choices for markup would be on the menu and no-one would have to
remember a thing. I was successful day before yesterday in making a menu of
favorite commands. I put it right on the Word menu bar. It would just take
a little more learning to figure out how to make a Word template for
whatever the staff comes up with. Then, when you sign up to be a volunteer,
you would be given instructions about how to use the template and no
anxiety once it gets installed on your computer. If you don't use Word to
validate, maybe we can figure out a way to make it easy for you also.

Thanks.

Jim

Well html is no problem to learn and easy to use.  Microsoft Word word has
a
built in editor and conversion program.

Finding a working optacon with battery and charger  may prove harder to
find.

Not many type fonts transcriped into braille. Capitalization, italics,
bold,
underline, quotes come to mind. Maybe the standards for Braille test books
will do, as they have been used for years.
