Ah, Rebecca. You've asked--and answered--the $64,000 The rules require only a minimum from the validator--making sure all the pages are there and that the copyright info is correct--and hopefully tha a spell check has been done and that junk characters are eliminated. But most of us now read the books and correct them as we go, so that the copied that go into the collection are as good as possible. There are words that the spell-check won't find, e.g., the numeral one for capital I, die for the, morn instead of mom--others I can't think of at the moment. Plus sometimes words are separated tht should not be, e.g., some where, to night(except in some English books or old books that do follow different spelling rules. Did you get the instructions about closing end-of-the line hyphenated words that should not be hyphenated? Cindy --- Rebecca Ilniski <rebecca.ilniski@xxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > hi all.
