I agree, in fact take a look of one of the new books Desperate measures and you will see that the stripper didn't get all the headers because sometimes the OCR programs put the headers further down at the top. If customers don't want headers and bookshare makes that a requirement that before a book is submitted for final aproval, all headers must be stripped. This would assure the headers would be gone any way and yes even if the headers at the top of pages are entirely correct, they should be gone anyway. As far as chapters go though, that could be a minor convience since they don't turn out sometimes. Just my two sense worth, will go with the guidelines of bookshare.

Let's scrap it. I leave in page numbers and breaks but take out the author's name and the title at the top of pages carefully letter by letter as I go. The messiness at the top makes bookshare books come across as messy output.

I think we can learn to do this well so the stripper is not necessary. Obsessing about it means validating books takes much too long as witness the discussion on the list. If we can get the ocr package people to get the remove headers to work that would be good. What is the judgement about the one in version 9?
