Is there anywhere in the submit manual a description of how to convert a file 
to RTF? I have wondered if these people submitting in other than RTF formats 
just don't know how to convert. Jill

  Hi, Misha. According to the Bookshare staff, Bookshare's server runs on a 
flavor of UNIX. They do not have a file converter that can process ark, kes, 
and wyn files when they come in. Files are simply zipped upon receipt and are 
placed in the step 1 area. For these reasons, I'm in favor of making rtf the 
only format for submitting books. Alas, the answer to that suggestion has been 
no. A girl can still hope though. (smile)

to rtf before putting them on step 1 (or do submitted files automatically 
appear on step 1 immediately?
