John, No, it doesn't matter if you change the filename during validation. I think they'll end up renaming it anyway based on the title because that's what they do to submissions. I usually drop the f1 myself in order to know which one is the original and which one is the one I'm working on. FYI, I've never seen one, but I'm guessing that it's theoretically possible to see an _f2 on the end of a file from Bookshare because I have seen a _d2 on DAISY files. We haven't verified our theory with Engineering, but Jake and I are guessing that the pseudo file extensions are being used to maintain unique filenames for Bookshare's archives. If that's the case, and it is possible to get a _f2 on a file at Bookshare, then you may want to play it safe and use another procedure for renaming your books, but I doubt it matters.

To avoid any errors in sending files I've slightly altered file names. I've been changing the f1 designation to f2. Will this confuse things with the staff doing some backend processing?
