In the past, I've know people to type up all their family recipes in microsoft word. The problem later is formatting them. If they decide they want headlines to be a different font, it's a pain to change them all (I know there's ways to select text with similar formatting, but this isn't always useful).
Whenever I've typed things, I've always got the data before I take care of presentation.
I've got a friend who wants to self-publish a recipe book (just for her family, not the world). There's sites like lulu.com that allow you to use (I think) a pdf format in the end to upload and be made into a book. But before getting it into a pdf format, what's a good way to get the "data" together?
Or, am I thinking about this the wrong way?
