Reports like this one should be complete with author, title,  page number, 
 and hopefully an existing sample attachment to be sent to Gustavo,  who 
in turn will forward it to the development team.
has this been done already?

regards,

Guido

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.

Cindy,
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.
