Monica, Not sure if you misunderstood or just use the phrase stripped by accident, but as I said in the earlier message, the Bookshare tools do not strip page numbers. From what I understand they do move them to the NCX file for the DAISY book since that's where the navigation info is stored, but they're added back to the text when a BRF file or HTML file is created. Based on what you described, I'd suspect that the Stripper might have trouble recognizing page numbers in your file due to the Tab character being there or due to the text in the headers possibly not being 100% identical. BTW, identical means exactly the same in regards to captilization and whitespace( spaces and tabs), as well as the words in the text. If it didn't recognize them though, the line would be left on the page because it mistook the header for part of the main text. Of course, you shouldn't rely on my speculation, but check one of your previous validations to see if what you did worked. That's the only way to know for sure what the Stripper did. Note that I said validation and not submission since you can't be sure what changes the validator made during cleanup.

I just messed up 2 of Laura Ann's books. I was removing headers and put her page numbers neatly at the top left of each page. There were adjacent to a tab character and the heading. I thought I was being careful so the stripper wouldn't be confused by the headers. Now I find out that my neatly placed page numbers will be stripped without a blank line. The irony is that I don't like doing page numbers. Someone somewhere has got to be laughing over this one.
