I disagree with your assessment of Ventura in this regard. I always has been
a good choice for writing tech docs. Ventura's weakness is stability and
that affected all kinds of documentation, that is, it is not especially
weaker with regards to tech docs than it is for documents of other types.

Quark, Ventura, and InDesign are generally not considered
the best choice
for writing tech docs.
