download errors

When I download a book by wireless facility, there are a number of spelling and punctuation errors.
Why does this happen and how can the errors be rectified.
Surely the quality od downloads should be accurate.

I have the same problem with PDF documents that I have uploaded for conversion to my free.kindle address

Thanks

Unfortunately it's got nothing to do with the download, but with the actual editing of the material you have downloaded.

I have been pretty lucky with the books I've been reading...

the downloading wouldn't affect spelling at all. the only punctuation it should affect is hard line returns and maybe line spacing between paragraphs. sometimes scanned documents have a bunch of "spelling" errors due to the quality of the proofing of the scan
