Script command submitted from PageStream internal documentation. Needs to be checked and merged with the command documentation above.

Gets the {...} .

chappath = NewChapter (chaptername chapter# [PAGESFROMDOCUMENT] [DOCUMENT document | CHAPTER document:... | WINDOW document-window])

The minimal form of this command is NewChapter('chapter name', chapternumber)

Note that the chapter cannot be named the same as a keyword. E.g., chapter, document, window, pagesfromdocument are off limits. This is not a limitation of PageStream documents, but of the script parsing.
