I can only concur...from the tools listed you could only choose one from the list
although I use a few not listed...like Framemaker for example....Also, the functions
and job descriptions of a "technical writer" have become so broad, diversified and in
some cases so specialised, i find it a disservice to the "profession/field" to be
thrown in the pile of "technical writer" only.....
