[bksvol-discuss] Re: validating

Hi,

        I agree, reading a book from cover to cover does make for the
cleanest copy of the book.  I'd like to add one thing to what E has said.
Please make sure that all chapter headings are present before removing
headers.  If chapter headings are just numerals, and no words, they often
won't scan.  If chapter headings are missing, it is often easy to tell this
and where to put them, before removing headers, because books rarely have
running headers on the pages where chapter headings appear.  If you remove
headers before accounting for all chapter headings, you may well not know
where to insert missing ones.

Mayrie

To our new volunteers,
First welcome welcome. Now for you validators here are a few ideas:
Whatever you use to validate, please use a spell checker when you 
start. You can then check for missing pages, remove the title and 
author at the tops of pages and read through the book. A spell 
checker finds some things. Reading a book cover to cover is what 
really works when validating though. So please pick a book you find 
interesting so you are willing to read it.

Again welcome.
E.
