Is this possible with DBMan SQL
I am a present user of Links SQL.

I'm looking to place thousands of actual books online in the form of a library. I would like to automate the task and enable easier change to the look of the books through a template system similar to what DBMan SQL offers.

What I appear to be unsure of is if DBMan can handle the functions neccessary for a book to be "online." For instance, does it allow the insertion of images so that it appears in different places in a record? Perhaps just allowing html input into the database would work.

My other immediate concern is the effect of "paging" through a book. DBMan allows the setup of a single database to be "paged" by letting a user advance to the next or previous database entry. With my setup though, I would want this only to occur within a single book. So when a book ends on page 150 I don't want the user to advance to page 1 of the next book by simply pressing "next." Is such a setup possible with DBMan SQL without having to use separate databases for each book?

Hopefully I've made myself clear...
