How does it happen that the ISBN on a book, say a paperback, comes up with a different format, e.g. hardcover?  I'm positive that I put in the number correctly because I checked it at least 4 times!

It would be nice if they could come up with a system where they could allow both to be posted by ISBN.  Like putting an H before the hardback version and a P before the paperback.  Then when you post you could just select that it's hardback or paperback.  But then I know nothing about computer programming to know how hard that would be.
