Hi, Lea. Page numbers and page breaks do need to be kept, for sure. As long as 
chapter titles, story titles, etc., are there, I don't see a problem with 
stripping repeated headers, but please do leave page numbers and page breaks 
intact. Take care.

  Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Confused! 

  I'm relatively new to volunteering at Bookshare, and I'm only doing 
validation as I don't have a scanner. 

  I've started getting hard-copies from the local library when validating in 
order to clean up the many typos/dropped words that I'm finding with the books 
I'm validating. I'm also only validating txt/rtf files because I am sighted and 
don't have any text-readers/braille software.

  Now - here is my confusion. I was catching up on my mailing-lists and noticed 
there was several long discussions about chapter headers, page breaks and page 
numbers. After reading this stuff I'm afraid I've made a horrible mistake in a 
book or two that I've validated and submitted. 

  I've basically been stripping out all chapter headers, page numbers and - 
*gulp* - page breaks, because that is always how I've put together scanned 
books in the past for my husband to read (he uses Jaws and then just opens up 
the books as text files). This was obviously very ignorant of me. 

  I'm currently working on a book, which I've gone back and added the page 
breaks. Do I also need to add the page numbers and chapter headers? Is this an 
absolute necessity?
