If you're writing novels from scratch, there's a lot to be said for writing straight into Sigil. If you don't add a lot of unnecessary formatting in the first place, there will be no issues about converting it. The little that IS required - basic paragraph styles, chapter headings etc. are easily added by a stylesheet in Sigil. Start clean, stay clean. Simples.
Thanks exaltedwombat. That's excellent advice. I'm just so darned used to Word. But yeah, composing in Sigil it would be clean from the get-go. And I'm sure I could get use to composing there. Thanks. Appreciate the wise feedback.
