Gerald, as always, is correct (smile)--and a big asset
and help whenever help is needed! As he says, if you
convert to Word or RTF to work in and save it as that
and upload as that you'll be fine. Just don't go back
to txt, which eliminates not only page breaks but
special fonts like italics if there are any.

The symbol you had in front of the author's name is
the symbol fo copyright. Some books have both the
symbol and the word, others have just the symbol.
