Mac users tend to approach these discussions without defining their platform, and assuming that their problems can always be answered by PC solutions. I've done enough MAC / PC design to know that fonts are the hardest thing to make cross-platform compatible. The discussions I read frequently make me wonder what platform they are arising from. I suggest that a simple forum for mac problems and solutions would be a great way to distinguish users and problems better.

I think that one of the things that has always outstounded me is Lulu's penchance for PC users. Perhaps because they UNIX/LINUX based.
In the real world of composition, graphic design, publishing and printing MAC has always been the standard.
I keep looking at the iMac range but with such a heavy investment already on PC software I just can't make the jump.
Anyway - you should add it to the SUGGEST area.

Graphic print shops had traditionally used Mac's as their servers. Mac had no problem with who created the document. I'm not sure that this is still the "universal" state of the businesses, PC's have the one advantage of being cheaper. But in graphics, print, design they are almost the exclusive computer of preference at places like MTV for screen, video, film, and print.

I am in strong favor of a Mac focused section for Lulu. Just joined and plan on using a Mac to create my eBooks. As a starter, does anyone have advice on how to setup and use Pages for eBook (through lulu)?

We don't get many Mac users which is a little odd as the Mac has always been the designers choice. Probably more popular in the the US than in the civilised world .
The Lulu interface has always been PC biased though and perhaps because it's Linux based.
I would have thought that Mac users would tend to deal with with Apple and especially if they are on that side of the pond.
