** Inherently clumsy? Inefficient? Try using FrameMaker
to deal with a document where the number of columns changes
from time to time. No, clumsy & inefficient depend on what
you're trying to do. Work long enough with any of these
tools, and you adapt your thinking to it so that
its capabilities seem vital and its incapacities
seem irrelevant. You even stop seeing the
waste space that FrameMaker insists on displaying
at the top and bottom of the page.

Breakable is another matter. FrameMaker seems to
be getting stabler while Word is getting less so,
and as the years pass, it begins to seem as if
nobody at Microsoft knows how to fix Word...
