Hello All,

<Wouldn't it make more sense to have the members of the writing team who
best developers of content (writers) use simpler software such as Wordpad,
vi, or (my personal favorite cyber-swiss-army-knife) emacs to write in text
files and having one or two of your best layout gurus using a good type
setting, markup, or layout program (TeX, SGML, Framemaker, Word ...) format
the stuff and make it look pretty?>[John Gilger]

I am the only member of my team at this company, so there is no division of
labor possible. In addition, as far as I am concerned, formatting is just as
much a part of my writing as the content. I am a visual as well as verbal
person and would be very frustrated if I could not design the look of the text
at the same time as I wrote it. I don't really make a separation of the two
when I write documentation.
