Hi Guido:

You say that the stripper only takes out isolated lines. Recently there was a 
discussion about the stripper again because the stripper only took out half the 
line. The title of the book is Dragons of Autumn Twilight and it only stripped 
Dragons of and left Autumn twilight on every page. And I know for a fact that 
there was a blank line following it on every page. That's what makes this tool 
so frustrating.

  No,  the stripper gobbles up only isolated lines,  that's the reason for the 
splitting on two lines.

  I don't think you have to worry about the location of the chapter numbers 
  and titles.  The only reason that the page numbers have to be in specific 
  places is so that they can be identified for use in the daisy file.  I 
  don't think the daisy converter is smart enough to find and use chapters as 
  navigation points yet.  I hope they will have that sometime in the future, 
  though.  Still extra formating could only help in that process, not hinder 
  it. :-)

  The idea of splitting up the chapter titles is to make them look less 
  consistent and therefore less appetizing to the stripper.  I am wondering 
  if that causes the stripper to eat the word chapter but leave the number 
  and/or title alone.
