Well, when I submit books, I usually submit them in rtf, but I don't keep the rtf file. I keep the kes file I start with, because if I retrieve my books after they have been approved the stripping process limits their usefulness to me. So, the copy I have is kes, but it is really not very good, and as I am rescanning I am making numerous corrections. Ernie should have a relatively easy time validating, but the books are very large so the job isn't a small one.

That sounds like a good solution. Katie or Ernie can
reject the one he or she has and you can re-submit and
one of them can validate. I'll keep both volumes and
renew when necesssary and then return and re-borrow as
necessary.

Thank you Ken. Just to satisfy my curiosity, what did
you do it in originally?
