Sarah I concur with your observations. Simiarlily, I try avoiding a converted .kes file prior to uploading. One thing that I do, vconcerning blank pages, is place some characters on those pages such as a series of dashes, asterisks, plus, if appropriate, a page number, suitably protected. These then are no longer blank pages and will then more likely upload correctly. To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line. To get a list of available commands, put the word 'help' by itself in the subject line.
