10.7. Making Your Own E-books

Though many people use the PalmPilot as a glorified paperback, many others load their own material onto the PalmPilot for later review. Unfortunately, the PalmPilot doesn't display bold, italic, style sheets, and other formatting niceties from your word processor documents; but at least you retain the text itself, which is good enough for shifting many important reading tasks into more convenient time slots (particularly when traveling).

The program you use to turn your own word processor files into Doc files is called MakeDoc. In the shareware world, there are several versions, one each for the Macintosh, Windows, DOS, and Java. (These versions are included with this book.) A superior, but costlier, avenue, is Documents to Go, which offers drag-and-drop conversion for Word documents.
