When I wrote my book Addison Wesley used Quark internally, but required me to submit my manuscript -on paper-. They then retyped it, sent me the proofs (which had enormous numbers of typos in them) I corrected and sent back. I asked them if I gave them the manuscript in Quark source files if they would take that, (because I had access to a pirated copy of Quark and figured I would import what I had written my book in) and they would not. They required a paper manuscript. Thus, use whatever you want to write your book - if your going to get it published most likely your publisher will not be using what your using.
