Well, I just got back from a vacation, so I will check and repl in more
detail.  However, while I was away, a book called PLAYLAND was approved by
BookShare. That book has about 486 actual pages, beginning at 1 and going to
486.  The book on BookShare contains less than 400 pages. I have not checked
the Daisy pages, but I will.  Meanwhile, you might want to check how a book
with almost 500 pages contains less than 400 in the Braille format.  I will
get back tomorrow with more info.--- Original Message -----

Hello DR Cross,
I'm going to respond to the question you brought up regarding this
particular book.  I'll send off another message that deals specifically with
some of the braille page number issues that have been reported.
Having examined and compared both the DAISY and the braille file generated
by the Bookshare tools after it was validated, I've determined that the book
contains exactly 546 pages as your original did.  Yes, Kurzweil does report
that the book has 556 pages instead of 546 as you surmise.  But, you have
forgotten to discount the preliminary pages in your analysis.  The first 9
or ten pages are the roman pages that contain the copyright notice,
contents, acknowledgements, etc.  the DAISY file is perfectly marked up with
the page numbers properly tagged.  In a tool that supports page navigation,
you would be able to navigate by using its facility.  Kurzweil 1000 does not
recognize DAISY page numbers at this time marked up by Bookshare tools.
As I'll report more with other braille tests, the braille likewise has the
pages marked and contains 546 pages with preliminary  pages marked properly.
HTH. Let me know if you have any questions.

I submitted No Gifts From Chance, by Benstock, but you might be interested
in the following. The book itself and the submission contained 546 pages.
The RTF submission contains 644 pages. The daisy file, by the way, contains
558 pages.  Now how do I know what page I'm really on?
