[bookshare-discuss] Re: publisher quality

Hey John,

Fix, the page break and page number issues before you start nuking excellent 
books for publisher quality o.k.

Letter perfect in my mind means that my student can look up page 137 with 
his or her classmates and get the RIGHT page.

Hello Rita,

I don't think we have run into this situation yet.  Since we are still 
working to create .brf files for the publisher quality books, we wouldn't 
replace an existing book at this time.

In the future, we probably will replace existing books with publisher 
quality copies, as they will be letter perfect, i.e. they won't have any 
errors in them.

What happensif a publisher donates a book that is already on the bookshare 
site?  Does the publisher quality book replace it or is  it left alone if it 
is already marked excellent.
