Back to topic. When emacs is daemon on my side, I start it before the

Org Mode is one of good ways of writing text, that may be exported as
books, with the contents, and all. Add the front page and back page,
and you get professional typeset book without the external
service. Tip for you as author. http://orgmode.org it is built in.
