My advice is not to worry about it. Page numbers are often stripped
anyway once the books are out of our hands. If you use kerzweil which
I think you do, the page breaks will be where they should be whether
you submit in .rtf or .txt. I'm not even sure if it matters if all of
the page breaks are there or if they're in the right places. The main
thing is that if a file has them, wherever they might be, the books
will be easier for the daisy users to navigate.
