Oh wow!! Coincidentally enough, we just moved from Jupiter and Arapaho ourselves in May. Actually, we lived on a small winding street called Wheaton, just off of Jupiter. In fact, I used to catch the DART bus there at the intersection near the Minyards every day. Talk about a small world! LOL We lived there for six years. Thanks for the information on the running headers. Actually, I do recall reading about normalizing the running headers, but well..I have to admit, I wasn't completely sure I knew what was considered a "running header". But, now I know! :) Jenny ----- Original Message ----- From: "Gerald Hovas" <geraldhovas@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, September 26, 2005 6:48 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: New Volunteer/Member > Hello Jenny, > > Welcome to the list, and we're happy to have you as a volunteer. > > What you're describing with the title and author at the top of the page are > running headers.
