Interesting. Do all databases you create have the oddball page numbers? If
so, create a minimal example and send the .dbf to the bugtrack list and I'll
look at it. Be sure to include details like whether it only happens when

Open the file ..\GEMS\TSText\1033\RVD_NoVotesInstructions.rtf with

Just add the headers as usual. They will currently be ignored by the TS.
We will add support for headers on the TS once I figure out how that used to
Just to let everyone else on the support list know, GEMS 1.9.5 and
AccuVote-TS 3.4.1 are not yet released. We will do an official release when
Whitman returns. At that time I will outline what features are not
currently supported with the integrated system.
