Writing and publishing ebook advice needed

I'm writing a technical book - and intending to self publish, mostly electronically. OSX - Best of class software? For writing? For publishing? Other deeper writing and self publishing questions inside!

Ok, so, I have a technical book out; I'm on my way to writing a second - but I want to self publish. I think there are two parts- Writing and publishing
First are writing tools:
I'm using Scrivener. Is this the best tool for me? Is there a better one? Let's say price is not an object.
I'm embarrassed to say I liked the layout in Pages (and word) for things like headings and the like. So, style sheets? Also, TOC and auto indexing? Is there a way to do it?
Anyone laid out an ebook with lots of illustrations/sidebars (or are there better tools for this?) I'm aiming hard at the iBooks and Kindle - what do I need to know/do prior to publishing?
Any/all advice wanted.
