Hi Roger and all,

 

I seem to recall something about the blank lines before and after a page
number helps the conversion tool recognize the page number and tag it.

We were instructed to put a blank line after the page number, but I don't
recall any instructions that we should preserve them by putting asterisks
there and of all the Bookshare books I have downloaded I have never come
across one with asterisks after the page numbers. So apparently the answer
is no. That does raise the question, though, of why we should place blank
lines after them. The conversion tool should just strip them out. I keep
putting in the blank lines anyway though.

Hey guys; 

I know that the conversion tool strips blank lines in text but I have a
quick question. When formatting/proofing a book, should we put asterisks
after the page number if we move them to the top or just let it be? 

My format looks like this (with the asterisks) 

blank line 

page number 

blank line 

chapter heading 

blank line 

text 

Note: that after the chapter heading I have asterisks but not after the page
number. 

So, am I suppose to put asterisks after the page numbers to preserve the
blank line or not? 

Thanks,
