Guido, what happens if we leave a space between the
page break and the page number? Can it still be 
included in the Daisy page?And if we leave a space
after the bottom-of-the-pge page number and the page
break? Will that save the number for the Daisy
conversion and also leave the number there for Braille
and other readers, such as the sighted disabled who
also qualify for bookshare membership?
