For books that no longer have authors (like the Robert E. Howard stuff I am reading now), I would assume that they had someone scan it in. Many of the errors that I see can best be described as OCR errors (i.e. "U" instead of an "LI").

Submission info on Fictionwise's site suggests that they want books sent to them in "ready-to-convert" RTF files, which they do not edit or check... they expect that to be taken care of by the author before submittal.
(I was looking into submitting my work to them, but they do not seem to want books that have not already been printed. I'm considering arguing the point with them...)

On an other note...I've finished the second in the Cyteen saga and I'm halfway in the third, it's getting harder to put it down and go to sleep. C J Cherryh is a fantastic and very intelligent writer. Her mastery of social relations and human psyche is uncanny and she gets everything well connected to her stories. It is funny how her story style is called scifi when everything she tells could pretty well be in this world. I srongly recommend her.
