E, <lol> I was hoping is all, and guess what?? There is a copy already in the collection submitted by Dr. Kenneth Cross with an excellent rating. Since this copy I have says, "good, some errors", I am goinng to well, reject it and let the admin who happens to approve it decide.

You mean that the book may be a duplicate? Are you joking or do I lack a sense of humor. What are you using to edit this thing? Rank spelling will read you the split words and the context in many cases so they can be corrected more easily. Hope this helps. confused, E.
