Aww, what the heck. I'm in. :-}

> How many people who want to do it have Word? And what versions of Word? Maybe it'd be better to just keep it plain text, but if that is the case, we'd have to make it clear that we don't want ">" marks scattered throughout it. You'd have to copy and paste the previous text into a new e-mail every time you added to it, and periodically it'd have to be archived as a text file on people's machines so that the e-mails didn't get too big. Maybe by chapters.

I don't have any kind of Word, and don't plan on changing that any time soon. Plain text would be best, I think, but if formatting is really a big deal for people, then I'd recommend doing it as an RTF. That should be compatible across just about every platform being used around here, I believe.
