Mary, I am only going to address part of your question. Do you have any reason to convert your RTF file to KES before validating it? As has been said on this list, the less amount of conversion, the better. You don't need to convert to KES to validate; I never do and with version 11 you will be placed right where you left off when coming back to the book.

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.
