Hope this non-Shakespearean question is appropriate for this list as
being of general interest to scholars.  I'm getting a book ready for
publication.  At this stage, each chapter, bibliog., etc. is a single
Word97 file.  I have an idea that for insuring uniform formatting and
spelling, setting cross-references, making the index, doing
whole-manuscript searches, and so on, the Master Document function of
Word might be useful.  But I've heard that there are problems with it,
and I know from several hours of frustration that using the Word Help
instructions to turn my files into a working document is, thus far,
beyond my powers.  Can anybody out there who has experience with this
procedure comment on its utility, direct me to more helpful help, or
suggest alternatives?

Head-scratchingly,
Dave Evett
