comment What software can handle both revision control and layout?
how I wish Google Docs could solve the problem - it woud be a dream come true. However, the limited (and canned) formatting options, together with limited file size make this unfeasible. As I mentioned, I will teach them how to use version control need be. I will also use a pitchfork if I need to - VC is PARAMOUNT to me. Where can I hear/read more about markup-based options? That might be the route I want to pursue.

I stand corrected on typists vs. typesetters. They are typists. We are CURRENTLY doing most of your recommendations (I implemented one central server a few years ago, everyone uses Word) - and yet I'm here. Sigh. Thanks for trying. p.s. text only was something that I was considering, especially as I can revision-control that six time to Sunday. But that will be all over the wall in post-formatting edits.

Have a look at how source code revision software works. You never have versions, they are always revision of some master item. Also, I need more automation. If I could rely on users to follow instructions, I would never be here in the first place!

@Kris - you tell me, can it be any simpler? I have had this question in my head for a few months now, and wrote it up to SE as clearly and concisely as posible. All content/wording is original - no email forwards or asking other to do my job (Its for a non profit where I volunteer - I don't/ am not get paid, btw). I think the opening line summarizes what they need, and the rest explains it. Feel free to edit make concrete suggestions about how to improve the question.

It's hard to explain, I'll add some details to the question. Update: done.
