The limiting factor is Heap though to a much lesser extent storage  
memory,  I found that when you get beyond the 600 page (newton book)  
size you risk a system freeze.
But even smaller sizes can take many many minutes to convert.  Still  
for me this is the easiest way to reformat a Newton Book, that I had  
not created.
Setting up NewtsCape can take a while to learn, and using Word Newt as  
an HTML editor can also be challenging, especially setting up TOC.
Much easier to create HTML document on desktop.

While you can create hot links within a book using Newton Press, it is  
much easier with Newtscape, and you can link outside the book to  
another book or a web site.
