Adding OpenStax Books to Pressbooks

Proofread and Double Check

To make sure that no new errors have introduced into the Pressbooks file and to create as clean a file as possible, the following tasks should be completed after the clean up phase.

  1. Check all links to ensure they work properly
  2. Ensure figure and table numbering is correct
  3. Check to make sure things are correctly placed inside shaded textboxes / LO / KT / EX boxes
  4. Make sure <span> tags have been properly bolded
  5. Fix inconsistencies in formatting across chapters
  6. Make sure line breaks only happen when paragraphs end
  7. Ensure <sub> and <sup> tags are used correctly within figure captions
  8. Ensure opening boxes in introductions are labeled “Chapter Objectives”, and opening boxes in chapter sections are labeled “Learning Objectives”
