COMMENTS AND CORRECTIONS ON THE CD-ROM VERSION OF
NAVAL AVIATION COMBAT STATISTICS—WORLD WAR II
The CD-ROM version of this publication was prepared
using a scanner and Adobe Acrobat Capture 1.0 software.
Several problems were encountering during the scanning and
correcting of the scanned text. Since the document was not
originally type set the scanning software and equipment had
some difficulty reading the typewriter letters and numbers
used in 1946. However, the major problems usually dealt
with the table headings, underlining and column lines being

If a group of numbers could not be corrected they were
usually left in a digitized format. Occasionally the
digitized data would not include letters or numbers that
were close to column lines and incomplete column lines.
Hence, the quality of software and hardware available to the
Naval Historical Center limited true reproduction of the
Following the initial scanning of the document the
scanned and processed text was proof read several times.

that was left in the digitized format will normally appear
to be in bold and may not be the same type of font.
The monograph is being presented on the CD-ROM just as
it was originally published. If there were any spelling
errors or grammatical mistakes they were not corrected.

A tabulation of commonly used words in the table
headings is provided to help clarify words that may have not
have been read correctly by the software, could not be
corrected or a letter was left off a word and could not be
corrected. The following list of words
