Hello List,
I'm back with yet another question. smile. While scanning a Goosebumps book
for upload, I realized that several words are hyphenated so that they may
pick up on the following line. For instance, if the word trembling is at the
end of a line and it will overrun the margin, the word is printed as
Will this degrade the scan quality (IE: will the automated dictionary give
the validator a lower quality rating,) or can the dictionary tell if a word
is intentionally broken up? Is there any way to remove these hyphens without
doing it manually? I went through a recent book I submitted: "Marriage and
Morals in Islam" and did remove the soft hyphens where ever I could. Do I
have to do this for every book I submit?
Thanks, and sorry for so many questions! :)
