All,  I have just downloaded:

1812: The Rivers of War by Eric Flint,

from the Baen Free library site in unzipped RTF format.  The book contains 
a valid copyright notice, an ISBN,  specifies that this is a mass market 
edition--meaning it is the etext of a paperback, and it appears to sport 
page breaks of some kind.    MS Word reports a total of 411 pages,  while 
Kurzweil 1000 reports just under 250 pages.  I suspect that the document 
may not use standard page breaks for pagination.  If this were the case, 
some editors may not detect page breaks at all.

[bksvol-discuss] Baen books again - how do we submit them?

Ok, with all this talk I am just curious about how we would go about 
submitting them.  The Baen books I have read none of them had page breaks 
page numbers and no Copyright info included.

Is this something that Jim and the Bookshare staff are going to work on?
