If you writing something as complex as you describe it is very hard to  
eat Latex.
Only latex will handle indexes, footnotes, references successfully.

The learning curve is not that great and the advantages enormous.

I would like to gather some suggestions for the following.

1) Don't want to go into that Latex thing.
2) Keep chapters in simple Text Format ( or markdown or Textile )
3) Project also contains a huge amount of reference files in txt and pdf
4) What's the best way to handle:

a) Index
b) footnotes
c) References
d) Appendixes etc.

Is it a good thing to keep the Book in one single file, or is it better
to use multiple files ?

Suggestions, links and resources welcome

regards, marios
