Comments about O'Reilly Media Scripting InDesign CS3/4 with JavaScript:

This book was a lifesaver for me on the other day. The explanation at the beginning about the Object model was the key to most of my problems. Now that I learned how to address certain elements, my scripts started to work just how I wanted! Thanks again clearing things up!
