Hi Chris,

Currently I am using HTML to do my own write up. However I am looking for a tool 
that will create a table of content automatically and allow me to export the 
document in different formats, like html or pdf or plain text.

I know DocBook format is one such tool, but I am wondering what the print 
publisher use? For your published book with Apress, did you write the entire 
book in html and hand this over to them for printing.

Kind Regards,
Rajinder Yadav
