What about all those blank pages at the beginning of books? Sometimes 2-4?

  No no no, if there's an extraneous blank page between 2 consecutively
numbered pages, please delete the extra blank page, because leaving it in
would also throw the numbering scheme off.  Sorry I didn't make myself
clear!

  Carrie, For example, if a book has a blank page between 49 and 50, how
would numbering that page help? It seems to me you would end up with two
page 50s. I'm sure you don't want us to change the print page numbers. What
don't I get here?  Jill

    Hi gang,

    Someone asked me to speak about protecting chapter titles:
    If there's a page number at the top of each page, there's no problem,
everything's fine.  If there's no page number at the top and the first word
on the page is not 'chapter,' then there's no problem, everything's fine.
But if the very first word on a page is 'chapter,' then the stripper thinks
that it's a header (instead of the chapter title) and promptly removes the
line. To avoid this, just add a line with 'chapter' on it above the REAL
chapter title, and the stripper will remove the extraneous line, and
everything's fine, the sun will shine on everyone!

    About blank pages in the middle of a book:
    Please add the appropriate page numbers to all the blank pages in the
middle of your books.  Blank pages at the beginning, between the title page,
copyright page, acknowledgments, and all that, are okay.  But there's one
type of Braille machine (Kurzweil?) that deletes blank pages, so immediately
the whole numbering scheme gets thrown off.  Adding page numbers to blank
pages prevents this from happening, and it also lets people know that they
are not missing a page of text from the book.

    Actually I think most people do a very good job at handling both these
situations, so I'm just blathering in general, not trying to criticize
anyone in particular.

    Carrie
