      Many Thanks Steve & Tammy

      I was hoping to be able to restrict the e-book to
      use on 1 computer at a time or maybe 2. There are
      programs around that protect a normal EXE file, such
      as those used by shareware programs. But being
      inexperienced in the e-book field, I have
      some reservations about implementing such restrictions.

      From a marketing standpoint, I believe the general
      concensus would be to not take this path and to be a little more relaxed.

      I read with some interest your response Steve, and can
      see how this would work, especially where the un-installation is concerned. I would like to write the
      book in word and then just print to the PDF engine.
      This to me is the easiest way.

      I have a program called
      multimedia builder, which can read pdf files and is quite easy to use. It creates a exe file which can be protected by various means. In the help file they say
      that it is not really suitable for large documents.
      If I were to use this program would it be ok to create
      the book in chapters, distributed individually?

      Do most e-book compilers use html?

      If this is the case It would take much longer to write & format the book.

      I am open to further suggestions or comments as this
      is to me a critical part of the project.
