Thank you for the advice -- Winston Churchill apparently once said: "Writing a book is an adventure: to begin with it is a toy and amusement; then it becomes a master, and than it becomes a tyrant; and the last phase is just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude – you kill the monster and fling him to the public." With self-publishing I get the impression that the book comes back as Zombie, turning the writing process in an episode of Resident Evil ... still, very interesting process.

There are a lot of points here, and I guess this is the answer I set as accepted. Although I had hoped for an answer what you wrote in the last bullet point "Change your colors." -- that was the point -- to what values? However, next line is the definitive answer: "It all revolves around quality - you want less, not more.". I do not think that it is possible anymore to do both with one file. I've got a character limit here, so I post another answer to sum up what I have learned, but first thank you for the answer. (BTW, I had set it to sRGB when exporting for the webversion, but good point.)

comment Do gaming peripherals (mice & keyboards) increase productivity of general computer tasks?
I was more arguing for the principle with a proof of concept than for this mouse. I would test any mouse I buy in a store first (might be only me, but I need a mouse that fits my hand), then look whether you can configure it this way. Given Lion, (un)fortunately the Logitech Mouse still works and I am still using Snow Leopard (have to change soon), so I cannot recommend another mouse, sorry. As for Steer Mouse, according to their website plentycom.jp/en/steermouse/download.html it should run on 10.7 (i.e., Lion).

comment Will my readers feel like they are reading a children's storybook if there are illustrations in my novel?
Adding the examples of warren below -- what about Sidney Paget illustrations of Sherlock Holmes. The illustrations pretty much defined the character in my opinion. If you manage to include them in a way that it feels "classy" (suits the overall theme), why not?

Hmm, interesting solution, however, it will not work for me. I have too many tables to convert them all in graphics and it would prevent text selection (something I am keen on having/offering). But I keep this solution in mind, thank you.
