Hi Kasondra,
    I'm assuming the book numbering is off because the stripper was unable
to properly catch on to what should be page one. I'm assuming if too many
page numbers are missing the stripper just starts at one with the beginning
of the file.
    Jim, this brings up an important concern as well. Having a copy that has
not been stripped may make it possible to see what page numbers the file did
have to begin with. They might be speratic, or just a few missing, but
enough to throw off the stripper into giving incorrect numbers. In
particular, pages with a single number, ie. 1-9 tend often not to scan.

Could we also have a look into the HTML conversion? Often times, the page
number will appear in the middle of a paragraph. If the software could
insert a line break before and after the number, the format would be better

Thanks and best wishes,
