Pam, the simple answer to this, is not all Bookshare members are blind, or
even low vision.  Bookshare is for all print disabilities, from the person
with a learning disability that causes problems with reading to the person
who can't physically hold books.  For these sighted members, the text looks
prettier in .rtf.  Plus those page breaks do make a Daisy file a bit more
fun to navigate, smile.

That is why.

With Rich Text you get the formatting of the fonts, and positioning of the
text which actually does add quite a bit to a story sometimes.  That is why
they want it like that.
