[bksvol-discuss] Re: protecting chapter titles, adding page numbers to blank pages

How many books have you seen that actually do that?

Carrie, For example, if a book has a blank page between 49 and 50, how would numbering that page help? It seems to me you would end up with two page 50s. I'm sure you don't want us to change the print page numbers. What don't I get here? Jill ----- Original Message ----- From: Carrie Karnos

 Hi gang,

 Someone asked me to speak about protecting chapter titles:
If there's a page number at the top of each page, there's no problem, everything's fine. If there's no page number at the top and the first word on the page is not 'chapter,' then there's no problem, everything's fine. But if the very first word on a page is 'chapter,' then the stripper thinks that it's a header (instead of the chapter title) and promptly removes the line. To avoid this, just add a line with 'chapter' on it above the REAL chapter title, and the stripper will remove the extraneous line, and everything's fine, the sun will shine on everyone!

 About blank pages in the middle of a book:
Please add the appropriate page numbers to all the blank pages in the middle of your books. Blank pages at the beginning, between the title page, copyright page, acknowledgments, and all that, are okay. But there's one type of Braille machine (Kurzweil?) that deletes blank pages, so immediately the whole numbering scheme gets thrown off. Adding page numbers to blank pages prevents this from happening, and it also lets people know that they are not missing a page of text from the book.

Actually I think most people do a very good job at handling both these situations, so I'm just blathering in general, not trying to criticize anyone in particular.

 Carrie
