Dear Pradik, Mike and Everyone,

Thank you for the specific instructions, Pradik. The page numbers will stay and 
the Blank page word pairs will Go!!! Oh, and I'll put in the 2 blank lines 
below the page number. 

Mike thanks for understanding my hope of submitting a book to Book-share as 
error free as I can make it. I'm an avid Book-share reader, too, and though I'm 
glad to get any book I couldn't find anywhere else, my heart sinks when a book 
has frequent text mistakes and is otherwise garbled. It seems that submitting 
books that turn out as cleanly presented as a book from web braille can't help 
but raise book-share's image in the opinion of readers. 

Pradik and everyone, The books for scanning from my latest pass along list have 
been mailed to volunteers, but I have a new stack, a taller one, I'll be 
posting as soon as I've made sure they aren't already in the collection. It's a 
wide assortment from angels to gritty street cops. 

Always With Love,

  For the purposes of automatic page numbering, you should continue your 
practice of keeping all blank pages.  You do not need to write the words "blank 
page" as Cindy points out.  However, the continuation of page numbering is very 
important.  Here is what I would recommend:

  At the top of the blank page write the pae nmber and press enter  twice.  So 
your page would appears as follows.

  Page break
  page number
  new line
  new line
  page break

  This will allow the pagination to continue.

  ~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,
