Thanks, Dan. I thought as much, given the earlier post, but wanted to
confirm.
The bookmarking feature seems very desirable, as does the table of
contents. I have two genuine Newton Books at this point, and the only
thing I find problematic is the lack of any white space between the
frame and the text.

I should go play with bookmaking myself to understand why that's the
case.

Thank for the confirmation and the links.

Cheers!

Greg
