Lora, had the same problem but since it was a short book, had a lot yesterday 
reading it. I could be wrong in my theory, but one reason could be that the 
page wasn't flat on the scanner. I have done this myself but gone back and 
rescan the page. I wonder if the type could have anything to do with it. I'm 
not the expert though so maybe Jake or someone else with more expertise will 
have the answer.

  I'm validating a book now that has a random space in the middle of words, 
perhaps four or five times a page.  The spell checker will catch most of these, 
but if the space appears in such a place that the characters before and after 
the space both form words, I'll never know.

  I suspect there's no way around this but reading the book through, which I 
may not have time to do.

  Any idea what causes the OCR to do something like that?

  Just curious,
