You know, this is completely bizarre. Is Andrew Plato really of the opinion
that using FrameMaker to create a document will automatically create a
document that contains inaccurate, misleading, or disorganised information?

Or that because FrameMaker is a tool for technical writers, it is a big,
bloated, useless dinosaur?

But then Andrew's not a tech writer: he runs an employment agency for tech
writers. Is this yet another example of "Them that can, does: them that
can't...?"
