Mary- I just sent a 24 page Kennedy Family Journal to a pdf995 pdf file. 24 pages, 215kb, without Index. 1300 pages, 130,000kb? It should fit handily on a CD, and you could throw in a UFT HTML file for good measure, barring the whole shebang coming down with a big crash. Might have to break it up into smaller sections.
pdf995Edit module could be used to append the index. No pix,unless you run it through Word?(shareware pdf995.com). Good luck, John
