Hi E,
People are not talking about adding formatting of their own invention to the
book. What happens is that somehow when the book is scanned the paragraphs
are not always indented in the scan--they are most certainly indented in the
print text. So adding indents to the paragraphs does not alter the book in a
way that would violate copyright. However, for many of us using speech and
braille, the physical indent is really not important. In speech you don't
usually get an indication of new paragraphs unless you set your speech for
that feature, and on a braille display the newline character is enough to
represent the new paragraph--at least for most users. For someone with some
vision, a document with no indented paragraphs is an intimidating and
confusing thing. <smile> That's why some people feel this is a big issue,
while others couldn't possibly care less.
