Hi Marisa

Newton Press is by far the most convenient.  I suggest making the files
available in text form and let users roll their own.  That will save you a
lot of time.

It is what you see is what you get, and easy to add images.  But takes a
while to add a table of contents since you can't search the document and
have to manually page though to get to the chapters etc.
Also it tends to crash a lot in my experience.  Save your project often and
to DIFFERENT files.  I have seen moments where everything looks fine but it
crashed on compile.  In the end I had to redo the entire book, yet
everything looked fine.  If you save to different files then you can go back
a revision without loosing your work.

Of course if you don't plan on doing a table of contents and only a simple
import then compile, then no need to worry about version saving.
