I edit my FR scans in Word all the time.  In fact, it is the only editing
program I use.  I never replace the section breaks with page breaks.  If I
do an insert-2 for constant reading in JAWS, it does not identify the
section breaks, but if I do a control-page-down, it stops at every section
break.  It's how I do page integrity checks and strip out any headers or
junk at the top or bottom of pages that resist find and replace.  If I go to
the end of the document and do insert-3, it tells me I'm on page 365 or
whatever it is, thus clearly recognizing all the section breaks as page
divisions.  I don't change the margins.  I don't change any verbosity
settings for JAWS.  Section breaks create no problem with editing in Word
and maintaining the page formatting of the original book.  Depending on
which computer I use, I have Word 97, 2000 and 2003.

Peace and Hope,
