Hi Julie, 

That's correct, txt files need to be uploaded as txt files. I was just
running an experiment. Sorry for the confusion. 

Take care,

Hi, Marissa. I thought .txt files have to be uploaded after validation
.txt files, or is this just to test the page break thing? Take care.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Page Breaks in TXT files

Hi Cindy,

In answer to your question, you should be able to tell if a txt file has
page breaks by a little symbol that looks like a square. DON'T DELETE
THE SQUARES. Or you won't have page breaks. I have no idea how they
sound in screen readers. They should be in the txt files you download
anyway. If they're not, then we can work with the scanner of the book to
save the file properly.

In the file that I tested, Word put page breaks where there should have
been page breaks, according to the txt file. I first opened the txt file
in Word, and then saved it as an rtf file without a glitch.

If people have other experiences or suggestions for how to test this
Word error, let me know.

Does that help?

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Paring the Download Validation list

Having finally finished the book I was validating, I
went to the download list to see what I might want to
do next (though I'm waiting to see what books from the
Fair list Marissa will send me). Those romance books
that people have been complaining about and that I was
willing to try to fix, if I could obtain the books,
are all in txt. Until the hard page break question is
answered, i.e., do we need them or is spacing between
the page numbers and text o.k. -- but then what about
the breaks that Word puts in where they don't belong?
-- I don't want to tackle them. If they are bad, why
don't we just reject them? People who want to read the
books can scan them and submit them as rtf, and more
of us can then validate them. And that would decrease
the number of books on the list considerably, it seems
to me, just from quickly eyeing how many there were,
not just txt in general but those.
