Lissi, maybe I am wrong in this but I don't format.  I've validated books
scanned by Caitlin, Tom, Jim P. and Carrie just to name a few, but the four
people I have listed have given me wonderfully scanned books with very few
errors.  I tend to concentrate on words--putting hyphenated words together
if they span a page break, getting rid of an excess hyphen in the middle of
a line, taking a word like
re - active for example and making it reactive, getting rid of garbage
characters at the beginning or end of words.  My feeling is that if, in a
dialog for example, each person's quote begins on a line of its own, and if
the beginning of what seems to be a new paragraph starts on a new line, I am
not going to indent or add spaces. While I don't have a braille display, I
think if I did, I would blanch at the empty braille cells indicating a
paragraph on an 18 or 32 cell display, being happy if each new paragraph
began on a new line at the left hand margin.
