I've used drupal before and it seemed like a ton of work just to get the layout and menu's I wanted and then I found out to do what I really wanted would take a plug-in that hadn't been updated for the current version (I think it was 6.0 at the time). So no drupal.
Any ideas on what to use. I don't need any fancy html or flash. The homepage will be simple. Would joomla be a good fit?
It comes packaged with a "block" that lets you show a sort of table of contents for the current book when someone is on a page of that book. So the layout in terms of getting that to show is pretty straightforward.
It also makes it fairly simple to put Next/Prev navigation at the bottom of the page.
If you set it up so that books automatically get added to a given menu, that should be pretty much automatic too.
For the images, you'll probably want something like img_assist or some other third-party module, which does pose the problem that you mention, though of course you can always put images in by hand (i.e. FTP to a /images dir and then just add an <img> tag).
I've never used it for 80 pages, but I use it a lot for things that spread over 5-10 pages. For 80 pages, you might want a two-level hierarchy so that your TOC isn't overly long.
