If anyone has a copy of the Newton Book Maker program, I would love to have
a copy. UNNA does not seem to have it. Perhaps there is copyright issues.
I did find this website (http://misato.chuma.org/paperback/) that seems to
let you convert any text file info a .pkg book. Has anyone had any
experience with it?
