I would like a definitive rule from Bookshare about print errors. /For 
instance, could we put sic after the word when it is a misprint; otherwise 
readers will think it's a scanning error that we didn't catch. Jill

  I think the rule is to match it as closely to the book as possible, so let it 
stand. By the way, as irritating as it might be to the reader, that should be 
done, too, when there is a typographical error or a misprint.

  Hi all, 

  I’m working on The Lady in Blue by Javier Sierra.  At the end of the book is 
a document written in old Spanish.  Some of the “abnormalities” are standard
  orthographic conventions of the period, things like using the letter u where 
in modern Spanish there would be a V.  others are the result of the font. 
  So, for instance,  the letter S looks like an F.  This also is typical of 
period texts.  My question: Should I correct/modernize it, or should I leave
  it?  One option would be to correct font issues, but leave the period 
orthography intact.   There is an English translation following the Spanish 
text. 

  I appreciate any input. 

  Thanks,

  Donna
