What's interesting about the formatting issue is that when you scan, with 
one of the 3 engines in K1000 Ver 10, the pages themselves will look 
different for a given page dependent upon which engine you happen to 
Hence, attempting extensive formatting is likely, for the average blind 
validator, to be a task in frustration and, from the standpoint of the 
average book downloader, not all that important.
That's why we more often talk about confidence ratings of the quality of 
the text rather than these stylistic issues.
There are times, as with charts or tables, where this is important.
But to spend hours reformatting a romance novel isn't a good expenditure 
of time in my view; and one likely could validate several books in that 
time frame which will be appreciated by those seeking those books.

Oh, just for the curious, when I say 3 engines in K1000 ver 3, I am 
counting, as Kesi does based on a discussion on Blindtech, the 2 flavors 
of Scansoft (fast and accurate) as 2 individual engines.
