I was actually thinking of doing the cover as a single
image, in png, which could be included in any file for
the publisher.
I could also do it as an AI format, which is still the
most commonly used format by publishers.
[ I keep an old linux box with a 2.4 kernel just to
have coreldraw 9 running, it was built to require the
toolchain for the 2.4 kernel and won't run on the 2.6
kernel ]

by putting together ideas and posting as png on a web
page then everyone can say what one(s) they like the
best, so we can all have input on what any proposed
book cover looks like.
I can put a simple page or 10 up if people want to
send their ideas as png, so everyone can participate
if they want.
I have lots of data transfer I'm not using on my
server, and space on it for doing something like this.
