In the spirit of full disclosure, the author regrets to report that he did not write the text of this book in Pagesnot because it isn't up to the task, nor that he wouldn't have loved to, but because publishing industry staffers (and FrameMaker) prefer to receive Microsoft Word.
Unable to fulfill a lifelong dream of having a personal secretary he could summon with an authoritative punch of the intercom and a commanding , "Come in here Miss Butler, pleaseand bring your pad," the author did the next best thing and wrote most of the book using voice-dictation software. Since there's nothing comparable available for the Mac, he used Dragon NaturallySpeaking on a Windows laptop, then rushed the Word files over the network to a Power Mac G4, where they were spell-checked, illustrated , and transmitted to the book's editors. Ambrosia Software's Snapz Pro X was used to capture illustrations; Adobe Photoshop was called in as required for touching them up.
