Hello again,

TXT files are notorious for not having page breaks.  If I remember
correctly, Word doesn't handle TXT files properly and removes all the page
breaks when you save the file as TXT.  The trick is to open the tXT file
with Word then immediately save it as RTF or a .DOC file. until you're ready
to upload.  At that time, it should be saved as an RTF file anyway.  The
only reason I know of to convert to a .DOC file instead of to RTF right away
is that .DOC allows you to spell check the document in multiple sessions
without losing your progress and having to start over from the beginning.
Most people don't worry about that, though, and just go ahead and convert to
RTF right away.

It sounds like the page breaks were probably missing in the original file
that you downloaded, though, which will mean an automatic rejection unless
someone can find a copy of the book and add them to the file.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Ariella Papa again

Okay, it's me, the pesky newbie full of questions, again!I just released
back to the download pool the book by Ariella Papa, called Bundle of Joy.
the reason I did this was because to my way of thinking, the book did not
look like it had page breaks, but I readily admit to being too much of a
newbie at this to say for sure.  So I released it so that someone with more
knowledge than me could look at it.  but was this the best way I could have
done it, or would it be better to reject it with my comments?  The book I
just validated and accepted had obvious page breaks, but this one looked
like most of the pagebreaks happened when Word, (it's a .txt book I looked
at in Word)), had a full page, not when there would be an actual page.  At
the beginning and end of this book, there were quite obvious breaks, which
is why I felt most of them were missing.  Any advice on how to handle this
kind of thing better in the future?
Sorry for all the silly questions and any help or suggestions would be
highly appreciated.
