Hello. I have been a lurker on this list off and on for some time and have validated a number of books. I recently began working with rank spelling and discovered a problem which I am afraid I may have had all along without realizing. I download RTF files into Kurzweil version 11; then change to KES for validating; then change back to RTF to upload. For my most recent book, which I have not yet uploaded, I had an original rank spelling of 98.57. After validating, it was 99.82. I checked again after changing back to RTF, and rank spelling had reverted to the original 98.57. What am I doing wrong in changing formats?

What made me think of checking this was when I uploaded one of the recently added books from BookShare which had a rating of Excellent. There were many errors. When I checked its rank spelling, it showed 94.5--obviously not excellent rating.

If anyone can straighten me out on this, I would appreciate it.  Thanks.
