I still don't see the problem. If author A submits the text for
e.g, page 11 to you then you can just import that text into
the text frames for page 11, using a style that includes your
chosen font. The text has to be associated with a specific
page I would presume.
Or if you don't need to associate specific text with a specific
page you can just ask that all text be submitted in plain text
form in one file. Then you can import it into linked text
What am I missing?
