Hi Sue. 

Firstly, since this is a publisher submitted e-text, I doubt it ever was in an 
.rtf format, and page breaks makes no sense to .html or .xml.

Secondly, I too am reading this book in .brf format and I've found a few page 
numbers. They seem to be at the beginning of each chapter.

  Hi All,

  I am reading The Simple Truth by David Baldacci.  The copy I am reading is 
publlisher quality and the submitter is listed as bookshare staff.  (There is 
another copy submitted in 2002).  Well, this copy has no page breaks or page 
numbers in the BRF file.  The quality of the text is really good.  

  Now what I am wondering is this:  If one of us submitted a book with no page 
breaks (horror of horrors) and no page numbers, the book woould be rejected.  
So why is it permissible for bookshare staff to submit books without page 
numbers/breaks?  I must say that the quality of the book as far as being free 
of scannos, is very excellent.

  I hope I'm not stirring up a hornet's nest.  (smile)  

  Sue S., who has been there, done that.  (smile)
