What are the specifics of defining a line of text?
We adhere to the AHDI standard. One line equates to 65 characters, including spaces. Footnotes, endnotes, headers and footers are part of the document and typically counted. Two or more successive spaces or tabs are counted as one character. There is no charge for page breaks, formatting (bold, underline, indentations, etc.), carriage returns, or spaces on a line without text. Total lines in a document are calculated by the total characters, including spaces, then divided by 65. The total billable lines are rounded. Refer to the following two examples: EXAMPLE 1: Total characters, including spaces = 7,000 Total characters divided by 65 = 107.6923 lines EXAMPLE 2: Total characters, including spaces = 6,000 Total characters divided by 65 = 92.307 lines
