~Hello Everyone,

Sometimes in the book I'm validating there's a blank page after a chapter. Page 
breaks are there one just below the other. I've been placing a blank line under 
the page break, writing, blank page on the second line and leaving another 
blank line beneath. I thought the stripper might delete my 2 words.

The other question is whether you think I should write a page number on the 
page. That's an oxymoron if ever there was one, because the blank page would 
now contain the words blank page and after a skipped line, a page number. Some 
blank, huh? 

In the book, that blank doesn't have a printed number, but it has been taken in 
to account on the following page where the chapter begins. for example, last 
page of chapter is 80, blank page, first page of next chapter is 82.

I'm asking because I have this bleary notion we're supposed to account for all 
pages. I'm afraid if I don't write a notice  that there's a blank page and 
assign it's number, the uploading program might think I've left pages missing.

Is that extra page break enough to account for the blank page? 

I've been using my judgment on this detail, but wonder what the rest of you do 
or if there's a right way to process these blank pages.

Thank you in advance.

Always With Love,
