Additional comments on BookMaster from colleagues --
I would not use bookmaster unless you have a whole lot of mainframe
manuals to write. It doesn't give small documents the look and feel of
slick, PC documentation. Use PageMaker instead.
Re Bookie comments: I'd quibble only with the bit about it being
difficult if you only want to tweak something a little. Depends on what
that "little" is; I'd hate to have to change, say, all H4s to H3s in an
800-page MSWord document. Much easier with Bookie (and a decent editor,
or REXX, of course!).
