Let me add to my earlier message by saying that even though I would not mind the title page sharing the same navigation level as other navigation points in the book, I would probably not want more than one title page to have it. Like I said, even though it would not interfere I would have not much interest in navigating to the title page, but if I had to navigate past several title pages before I could go on to other navigation points I was interested in then that could become really annoying.

Thanks Valerie, that's helpful! I'm still not sure it's a non-issue. smile. I've done hundreds of books too, where I've had multiple title pages and only fonted one page with the 20 point font. I'm curious to know how well the navigation works with multiple title pages vs one title page from the perspective of our blind compatriots as well. smile.

It is my experience since there are no other navigation points in between in the instances (hundreds) I have done, it is a non-issue. Would probably be an issue in Ombudsmen books or whatever it is called when there are multiple books in a volume, but those books have neve not had mutiple title pages, in my experience.

Keep up with Nichole's recovery:

*Subject:* [bksvol-discuss] Question on Multiple Title Pages and DAISY Navigation

I've got a new question now, after reading the various answers in the thread on font sizes and the title page. smile.

What happens with DAISY navigation when there are multiple pages in the front of a book where the title appears as a title-type page, and we make the title 20 points in size on every one of those pages? I don't use the DAISY navigation myself when reading a book currently, as I use the XML file.

But, it would seem to me, though, that making the title 20 points in multiple places kind of defeats the purpose of having a distinct title page in regards to navigation? Or doesn't it matter when you're using the DAISY navigation, and it's easy to zip through from point to point even with multiple 20 point font title pages?

Is what I'm trying to ask making any sense? I'm not being contrarian (honest! grin). I'm just trying to understand what works best for the navigation for you guys who can't use the visual cues that I rely on to navigate through a book. smile.
