Hi Bob,

But have you noticed that the numbers at the beginnings of chapters are the 
same numbers as the chapter?  For example, 16  Chapter Sixteen
So could you really consider that as page numbers?

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)
