Oh, I was wondering what all those dashes followed by an elegible word was! I always translate my Braille files to text, and never could figure out why that feature was always there when it wasn't there in the books I scanned. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Shelley L.

mary, did you download the Daisy edition of the book, because if you did,
the page numbers are there, just not visible in the file.

To find out which page numbers are actually in the file.  make a .html
version of the file, and it will show the page numbers.  Also the braille
edition is supposed to have a dashed line with the page number at the end of
it.

Hi Mayrie, I checked my Encyclopedia Brown book and it had page numbers at
the bottom of the pages. But I did put a blank line between the text and the
page number, and a blank line after the page number and the page break. I
wonder why the finished product ended upon Bookshare with no page numbers at
all?

You have to have page numbers because it says things like "turn to page 67
for the solution".

 Argh!

 If I were going to do the book over I would move the page numbers to the
top because, like Lissi says, especially when you have to skip to another
page, you want that number at the top in Braille because otherwise you have
to find the page number and then go up, up, up to find the start of the
page.

Why don't I fix the file and resubmit it as a BSO with the page numbers at
the top? And then you can validate it, if you want, and we can see how it
works out?
