I definitely think it would be a good thing for you to submit your better copy. Be sure to put a note in the comments section that you've looked at both copies and yours corrects errors that are still in the other copy.
I think sometimes scanners mark books as excellent when they're not, perhaps because whatever they're using misleads them--for example, if I understand correctly, K1000 won't catch errors that are correctly spelled but are the wrong word for the context, or the numeral one for a capital I. Will it catch words that are missing half if the first half is a word by itself? I'm finding a lot of those in the book I'm validating now, where words are hyphenated at the end of a line but only the first part of the hyphenated word is in the scan and it's a word, e.g., "day" but the second part, "light" is missing, I'm assuming,perhaps incorrectly, that K1000 won't count that as an error. And what about words that are missing altogether? Again, in the book I'm validating now, there are a lot of those. Presumably the scanner didn't hold down the book at the binding (it's over 900 pages and heavy and would ve difficult to do) so several words at the ends of sentences are missing. Would K1000 give such a book a lower rating, or does it just catch spelling errors?
And please, no one suggest that I reject this book. It's an interesting and worthwhile book to have in the collection, and I'm enjoying reading it. Correcting as I go along is no problem. I can't imagine anyone rescanning it, but even if they did, it would have to be revalidated, and I'm sure the whole process would take longer thanit's going to take me to perfectit.
