I am trying to find an easy way to manage/edit a set of standard operating procedures that's around 400+ pages between 4 word documents. I would like to move it to the web.

I have used markdown on this site and other sites to easily make short "documents". These tend to be short in nature, on the order of a page or two.

I've been thinking about going with markdown but I'm unsure of how to manage and organize the large number of chapters and sections it has. I haven't found many articles regarding markdown and large, complex documents. Is markdown a suitable solution?

Is there a limit to the length of the document in markdown? And are there any web services that host markdown to make large complex documents.

I know about Google Docs, and Microsoft Live, but I am more interested in the ease of web formatting in markdown.

This isn't really the right forum for this type of question, but here's my quick opinion. Markdown was created to make creating web docs easier: From Daring Fireball: "Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid XHTML (or HTML)." While you may be successful creating your document based on markdown and it'd be easy to read. You'd have to host it somewhere that it could be converted to end-user readable text. – Dez Jun 2 '12 at 0:10
