I am very new to both this list and this profession, having graduated over
the summer and started my first Technical Author job just seven weeks ago. I
am the first technical author the company has had as all documentation was
previously written by the people who created the software and so I have
no-one to question with regards to "the way things are done". I have noticed
that Framemaker seems to be the popular choice for creating technical
documentation but I have no knowledge of any alternatives to Word or their
benefits. Would somebody mind enlightening on things that beginner technical
authors should know???

Thank you in advance
