Thank you and Gerald for correcting me. I wonder how I managed to download a
"good" book. Actually all pages are there and page breaks don't seem to be a
problem. It does say who submitted the book; obviously he thought the
stripper would work but it didn't do so consistently. Since one would have
to have the book on hand to make the corrections, I guess the validator
can't be blamed either.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: reading 1776
Right now, the book has a "good" rather than an excellent rating. This, of course, still makes the book eligible for brailling. Based on what you report, the end result would likely be disappointing. What is even more disturbing is that the listing for 1776 indicates a book of 5 pages which means that the book is either incomplete or, in this case, devoid of most of its page breaks. I can see where headers might prove a problem on a Braille display which doesn't use true pagination. Hopefully, someone down the road will rescan the book and replace the copy which is in the collection. Incidentally, the submitter of the book is unknown as it is that infamous "a bookshare volunteer".
