Another thought on quality.  I downloaded and validated a "good" book, which
personally I would have marked excellent, there were very few errors,
besides on occasion words running together without a space.  I edited it,
and it was a pinch to upgrade it.

Another book I validated was marked Good, and actually did deserve it,
because of the junk characters present.  But by erasing those characters,
and removing the two duplicate pages, with the better ones, it was really
simple to upgrade that one to Excellent, so Good and Fair are definitely
relative things.

There is a book in the collection The Cross and the Switch Blade which is a
great example of a "fair" book.  I have a better copy here to replace it.  I
could still understand the book, but... when Gwen his wife was Owen
throughout the book and other things like Dimes being Dunes, it detracted
from the book.  It is in the to be edited pile, so will submit it when the
Queue goes down, and I have the time, smile.
