Me, too. Mike was kind enough to download several books that I validated withheaders and page numbes treated in several different ways. Apparently all the page numbers are missing except in the book in which I created a header for each page--and the chapters were left alone where I had put a word at the top of that page. So now I'm leaving the headers if they're there, but correcting them so they're all the same and spelled correctly, and putting the page number on the line below. If there is no header I'll use dashes or asterisks as Mike and someone whose name I've forgotten do. I forgot to ask, Mike. I think you told me that the page numbers at the bottom were also deleted. I didn't realize the stripper stripped those, too--maybe I wasn't paying attention when people mentioned footers. Should I put something after the page number that can be stripped rather than putting a line space between the page number and the page break? Pratik, apparently your advice about line spaces between page break and page number doesn't work any more. The stripper got wise and changed its m.o.
