Sorry, what I mean by double double quotes is two double quotes on each side, with each double quote being a ".

This made the other nine choices disappear, leaving only the first choice, indented about 1 cm to the right.

Yes, it starts over if you revise your post, since you might be changing which books you mention. BTW, the "link" section does say:

> > Use this section if you want to link to a different book at Amazon or don't want to link to Amazon at all. If you revise your post, these options are reset, so do that before you do this.

So first say what you have to say, then take care of the links.

Note that you do *not* even need to click "submit your links" *unless* you want to link to a different book or don't want to link at all. Just click "confirm your post" for the default (first) link.

Is that more clear? Should I revise the explanation in that section? Thanks for your willingness to try this out, and for your patience...
