I'm not quite sure how to interpret responses from this question as it is
worded. What is the poll supposed to tell us? For example, I am forced to
use Word to create all documentation. It was a corporate decision. This
would not be my decision. I suspect the case is the same for many
respondents. In this sense, we are not seeing what the best choice for this
type of document creation would be but only what people are using. And is
this the reason for the poll question - for product marketing?

Subject: New TECHWR-L Poll Question
I've updated the TECHWR-L Poll with a new question:
When writing hardcopy or single-source documentation,
you primarily use:
* FrameMaker or Frame+SGML
* Star Office
* Adept or other dedicated XML/SGML tool
* Other/none of the above
If you haven't yet participated in the previous
polls, you can still do so. Use the Results link
in the poll box, and then choose the Vote option
available with the previous poll questions.
Thanks for participating!
