Nope not pagemaker, I forget the name at the moment....I will see if I
can find it. And as for figuring out multi-format books, that was me. I
came very close hacking the source files created by Bookmaker, however
the pagination was still a little off. Never did get it perfect. I
thought it was at first, but then quite a ways into the book I would
loose a few words, sometimes a whole sentence. To compensate I reworked
the raw files adding blank areas. But whew to make it reliable I had
them at certain intervals (which were not obvious at times), and made
the process really too much of a problem to bother with.
