Okay, so whenever someone at the office intends to submit a book for general 
editing, the person should convert the section breaks in the file to page 
breaks before submission, since some (but not all) of the common editing 
programs don't recognize section breaks.
 
I'll discuss this with Marissa when I go in on Thursday, and see if she agrees.

Hi Carrie,
    I'm not a K1K user, but I can definately say that it does see normal page 
breaks. Whether or not it recognizes section breaks I do not know. I'm assuming 
someone out there can look into this and let us know.
    I am an OpenBook user (not by choice) and I'm not sure how it would handle 
"section breaks." If you or someone else would like me to look into it, I'd be 
happy to do so, just point me in the direction of an appropriate file.
 
HTH,
Jake

Hi Jill,
 
When I replied to Reggie off-list, I said that the OCR program at the Bookshare 
office puts section breaks instead of page breaks in its RTF files. I always 
change the section breaks immediately to page breaks whenever I validate a 
book, even though Marissa said I needn't do that.  Maybe before we submit books 
from the office, we should change all the section breaks to page breaks, but 
I'm not sure this would help.  It sounds like Kurzweil ignores both section 
breaks AND page breaks.  I don't know that there are any other kinds of breaks 
that we can insert between pages.  What do you think?  Should we change the 
section breaks to page breaks before submitting books, or is there another 
alternative I'm not thinking of right now?
 
What I told Reggie to do was send me the books, and I'd see if the section 
breaks were still there.  If they were, I'll change them to page breaks; if 
not, I'll get the original books from the office and insert page breaks at the 
appropriate places.  Either way, the books will get page breaks, then I'll send 
the page-breaked (page-broken?) books back to him.

You're not the only one who is confused about page breaks in spite of the help 
others have given. I am currently using Kurzweil to validate and it doesn't 
ever even say the word page break. I just assume they are where the Kurzweil 
page numbers are spoken but don't know if that's correct. And if a book number 
is missing I really have no idea where to type it or whether to insert a page 
break. I could really use help on this. Jill

Carrie:
I have 4 short children's books that were placed on the site last week.  They 
are validated, but I cannot find any page breaks at all.  Should I reject them 
(not my favorite thing to do), accept them as is, or release for someone else 
to put page breaks in who can see them? They are RTF and I placed them on my BN 
to validate.  Sure hope I did not clear the page breaks! 
 
I have contacted Gustavo, but when I saw your name on here, I decided to ask 
directly! I am just so, so confused about this page break thing! I don't have 
Kurzweil so I am not certain anymore what I should use for validating.
