I am hoping someone can help me with a budding problem.

I am the only technical writer in my company. As part of the engineering department, I am constantly at odds with our marketing department, which sees things very differently than anyone else.

The latest battle with them came this morning when the marketing director wrote me and my boss (the VP of R&E) an email saying it would be a good idea to switch me from using Framemaker over to Quark, which is what marketing uses.

I don't like Quark, although if I am forced to use it, I won't mind learning it to put on my resume.

Most of our product manuals are from 9 to 40 pages long. Can anyone on this list please tell me the pros and cons of using Framemaker or Quark, or vice versa?

I'm meeting with my boss later today to discuss it. I want to be prepared about the pros and cons. I did a lot of web searching today but didn't find very much.

Thanks for your help.
