Thanks for the explanation Shelley.  You are an advocate of RTF and
submitting in plain text threw me.  <smile>  I got it and will give it
priority.

Because the braillenote refused to translate back into .rtf.  It was
severely truncated, so I had to submit in plain text.  The file does have
page breaks, and I thought it basically needed a spell check.  As I read it
through and removed junk, fixed duplicate pages and the like.

So it isn't a hard validation.

But yep I normally do do .rtf unless the Braillenote and I have other ideas
as it did with this one.

YYep, it is very strange and that is what scared me, a Herriot fan!  <smile>
I'm curious to know why you did that one in plain text?  You usually submit
RTF.  And another person, the famous "a bookshare.org" volunteer, had it
before Reggie..  <smile>  If someone with more experience doesn't pick it up
by tomorrow II will try it, but I have wordpad just like Reggie does.
<<lol>>

Hey, that book was a simple up and down validation.  smile.  I put a lot of
work in it, smile.

Why is it so scary?

And I can't figure out why it would be a bit odd with as it was edited on
the BN as a .txt file, strange to be sure.

Smile.

Reggie,

Considering how long you worked on it and considering that someone had it
before you, I am chickening out.  Maybe it wants someone with a fancy
validation setup to edit it.  Gosh, no wonder you've had it!!

I have been trying to work on the BN with James Herriot's Dog Stories for a
very long time.  Everytime I would just about get it done (this happened
three times) my BN dumped it.  I finally validated but when I tried to
upload it I was told it was not a valid file.  This has happened before and
of course I went in and found the book in Word Pad and placed a space and
then backspaced.  Well, it was TXT and guess what? I have had it.  Could
someone who can do TXTs please take this over! Shelley did a wonderful job
on the scan so it should be easy, easier than it was for me!  Thanks.

Reggie
