Hi, E. I agree with you. In fact, I just rejected a book yesterday that was supposedly fair, but there was a lot of misplaced text. Sometimes, all the text was there, but it was misplaced. Then, there were words that were partially chopped, and it was sometimes hard, if not impossible, to tell what the word was supposed to be, so I had to reject it. Take care.

Given the kind of tools we have for software and the improvements in scanners in the past five years or so, what excuse can there possibly be for submitting books with "Many errors but legible throughout"? They take a lot of time to validate and sometimes cannot be fixed at all. I just do not understand such submissions unless they are books which have a lot of graphics or something which the scanner software cannot grok. E.
