I've been thinking of scanning books on card games such as bridge and Texas
Hold 'Em.  My first question is whether there would be those interested in
seeing these on Bookshare.  Are there other game books that would interest
My second question is this:  Most books on card games use pictures for the
cards.  Is there any way to tell the OCR package something such as:  When
you see this picture, put jack of clubs or jc or something there instead.
And my third question is:  If I do take the time to scan such books, or beg
someone else to do them, how would you want the cards represented.  Options
ten of clubs (lengthy)
xc (how I would see it on a card)
10C (a possibility)
