It's 3 keystrokes *per chapter*. If you have a book with 17 chapters
and 5 appendices, that means opening up 22 files and performing a
similar set of 3 keystrokes for each, except that you have to be
careful to be sure you don't get one of the numbers wrong, *and* if you
*change* the order of the chapters, you have to go back and change the
numbers, etc, etc. In Frame, the chapter numbers are produced by
setting up the book file, and if you change the order of the chapters,
by changing their order in the book file, the chapter number prepended
to the page number changes automatically. It's one less thing to keep
track of in a complex document. (Interleaf, as I remember, uses a
similar papradigm, where the autonumbering is done on a multi-file
book basis, not on an individual file basis.)
