Here is what happens when the stripping tool does its work.  There are
certain inconsistencies.  However, the page numbe on the first line is
significant because after stripping it, the automated tools makes certain
that the page number is imbedded into the structure of the DAISY file.  So
it is important to make certain that the page number is on the first line.

I've decided just to put the word header on the first
line, skip a line and put the page number, then skip a
line and start the text.  Has this worked for anyone? 
I hadn't  paid much attention to the problem, assuming
that what I'd been doing had been preserving the
chapter titles, until Grace downloaded a book for me
and told me chapter titles and page numbers were gone.
