Pictures are included and exported in the HTML documents. What I would like to do (if I knew how) would be create templates for the book, chapters, and recipe-like documents. Then import them easily into the appropriate template. My hope is that the text and image frames are somehow named so that the document title goes to the Title frame, The supplies (ingredients) goes into the Supplies text frame (two columns with bullets), and the procedure steps goes into the Procedure (instructions) frame with numbers.

Hi Dave,

The short answer is no. You can import HTML text into a text frame. Images will simply show the link for the image file, in the text frame.
